The hypothesis that higher educated twenty-somethings experience more choice overload than lower educated twenty-somethings was tested. 146 participants, either in university or in community college, filled in questionnaires asserting their levels of choice overload. As expected, higher educated (WO) twenty-somethings reported more choice overload than lower (MBO) educated twenty-somethings. Correlations were also found between choice overload and peer-pressure, student’s housing situation and whether or not students regarded themselves as adults. It was concluded that higher educated twenty-somethings indeed experience more choice overload compared to lower educated twenty-somethings.
