Tolerance for ambiguity

Tolerance for ambiguity is the ability to live with a situation that is not clear cut, where different interpretations of what is happening are possible and where the outcome is uncertain; the ability to accept complexity in human affairs without seeking simplistic solutions. High tolerance of ambiguity is usually seen as a sign of psychological health and maturity.
