The third principle states a person is not to be treated as unable to make a decision, merely because they make an unwise decision. This is where the focus of assessing a person’s capacity needs to be based on how the person makes the decision, rather than the decision they make. In effect, the decision itself should be irrelevant. If we base our assessment of capacity on the decision, then we are applying our own or society’s beliefs and values to the decision, not the person’s.
