People who justify their decisions with logic even though the decision was based on their emotions may not be poor decision makers. The fact that their justification was not the actual reason does not implicitly mean that their decision was poor.

Emotions are what drives many people.Such people make emotional decisions to gain emotional satisfaction. It may be that sometimes, they do not want to disclose the actual reasons for their decision, hence providing logical reasons for their actions. This does not mean that they are poor decision makers.

Also, the fact that they are able to provide a logical explanation may mean that it was not a purely emotional decision. It could have been the best overall decision which could be made.

Sometimes, it may also be that people actually act without much thought at the onset emotional flooding, and end up making decisions they regret. In such cases, they can be called poor decision makers if they are trying to justify their actions with logic for the sake of justifying their actions.

It can be argued that just that just the act of changing their reasons for making a decision does not make the person a poor decision maker.
