I have a co-partner... he irritates me a lot because, for example we are building our company. He continuously wants to initiate a new idea even if it is bad without making sure we stabilise the current operations we do.
He will talk to his friends about his ideas when I don't respond so positively, and any positive affirmation of the idea, he will run with it and want to do it
for example, we are making a school in china that we run. We have not even started it yet. He told his friend... now his friend said we should make one in another city also. So he wants to start that and we haven't even stabilised otherr parts of our company yet and he keeps wanting to do new things justifying it by saying "this is business"
but not quite the words to describe it.
sometimes don't know how to deal with him

This is an interesting question. Perhaps quixotic (not quite but partly)? Validation-seeking? Affirmation-seeking? not quite gullible...
Huh. I don't know if there is a word for this. I would say easily swayed but it's someone who listens only to yes-men.

"Someone Easily Convinced by Anything that Confirms their Ideas" is confirmation bias, but I'm not sure if you can use that as an adjective.
What you're describing, however, doesn't sound like confirmation bias. I don't know what to call it either.0
