No, ambivalence is where you feel two opposing ways about the same thing. I just keep changing my mind.

Yes, we had to learn how to do so in class. Wow, school's actually useful XD

Look at the diagnostic criteria. I had to search through DSMIV until I found the appropriate umbrella disorder.

Are you saying aboulomania is a sub-category of Dependent personality disorder?

Yes. It's listed there as one of the characteristics. DSM-IV doesn't have a monograph for aboulomania itself.

I'm never able to keep an opinion on something for longer than a month but I'm not dependent on other people's opinions.

The definition of "pathological" is that it has to have a negative effect on your day-to-day life. Does this weakness have a negative effect on your day-to-day life?

Based on your age, I'd chance a guess that you're still figuring out who you are and accordingly, you have no conviction.

I'll bet that's the locus of your nihilistic beliefs, as well.
