Do we really control our own decisions?

I’m thinking about the burden of navigating decisions that come with BRCA today, after reading this article from Dan Ariely.   To what extent do we want decisions made for us, and to what extent do we want the power to make our own decisions when the future is uncertain?

I also have found it frustrating to learn that people who end up receiving ‘Variation of Uncertain Significance’ in their own test results are not given this information.  Is this really the best thing for people who are trying to make informed decisions about their health?
