    Welcome to ELL. We ask that you consult a dictionary before asking basic questions of meaning or word-existence like this one. It is easy to determine that the word decisiveness does exist. Or did you mean to ask about impactfulness? – Tᴚoɯɐuo Apr 29 '18 at 15:02
  • It not only exists, but can be used in the way you used it. – Jason Bassford Apr 29 '18 at 21:39

  • You're correct, but please don't encourage obvious "look it up in the dictionary" questions. – stangdon Apr 29 '18 at 20:01
  • @stangdon , you are also correct. However it's slightly funny or ironic that on this very page now in the right column I see "BLOG: Stack Overflow Isn’t Very Welcoming. It’s Time for That to Change." which includes “Be welcoming, be patient," etc etc – Sam Apr 29 '18 at 20:17
  • @sam Especially when the area of Stack Exchange is one meant to help people who are new to English. If it's the same person who always asks dictionary questions, that's fair. But I see no reason to penalize someone who's completely new to this forum and who has never asked such a question before. – Jason Bassford Apr 29 '18 at 21:38
