Most likely, the problem is in the cistern (the thing behind the toilet bowl with the handle in it).

If you think it's obstructed, lift the lid on the cistern and see if you can see why; otherwise, fill a bucket with water and pour it quickly into the bowl. That flushes the toilet and will serve until you can get a plumber to deal with the cistern. It will also help to keep the risk of disease low.

No, if it is an old toilet needing 8L or more. You will have to flush 2 or 3 times to have a complete flush even when it is a slight number 1...

What would make a toilet not flush forcefully?

If your plunger is left in the bowl. :) Since I've been snaking out toilets for many years I come to the conclusion that when a toilet doesn't flush right, the reason is like lightening and it never strikes the same reason twice. So your problem of your toilet not flushing smooth can be a million different problems but 90% of those problems are in the toilet bowl trap. If you plunge and snake the toilet and it still wont flush right then pull the toilet and look at the drain and if its clear then your problem is still the toilet which since china makes stuff so cheap , its almost cheaper to buy a new toilet then to buy the repair kit for your old one, in fact to have me repair your toilet and to have me install a new toilet with buying the toilet would be about the same price so almost everyone gets a new toilet and we live happily ever after.
