Only One – The ‘Only One’, or ‘The One and Only’, is a common yet severe derangement of a person aware only of themselves, in delusion she or he is above all others and thus oblivious of their presence or their attempts to communicate to them. And when this deteriorates to extreme, we have insanity or death. (CCM, Ch. 3, Comm further Examined) 

Open Hostility – 2.0 on the Scale of Emotions – From this point downward, the person’s attitude to life becomes negative. He devotes most of his energy to defending himself from his environment and even attacking it. (LP, Ch. 1, The Scale of Existence and Emotions, C&I, Ch. 2, Responsibility and the Emotions Scale; CCM, Ch. 2, The Emotions Scale)

Optimal Solution – 1) The optimal solution to any problem is one that examines each of the eight drives and brings maximal benefit to the greatest number of drives in the long term. (LP, Ch. 1, Our Drives in Action)
2) By optimum we mean the most favorable, the best possible for all involved. The optimal solution to any situation we encounter is that which considers all factors affected by our decision. The optimum solution is the greatest good for the greatest number of drives. (C&I, Ch. 1, Control and the Drives of Existence)

Orders are commands, the instructions issued to oneself or to other people to execute the plans. (LP, Ch. 2, States of Existence)

Orientation (Route to Spiritual Freedom) – These processes are done with a listener. They take place between a person and his environment, whereas other listening processes handle the PC’s mind. Orientation processes help locate the PC in his environment and bring him, alert and confident, to the present. (LP, Ch.: RSF)

Originate – By ‘originate’ is meant a statement or remark referring to the state of the coach or his own fancied condition. All originations concern the coach, his ideas, reactions or difficulties, none concern the student. (CCM, Ch. 4, Drill 8)

Origination Person talking about himself. (CCM, Ch. 4, Comm Drill 8)

Other-determinism – is when one is controlled by another. This is another person deciding for you, to his benefit or for the benefit of both. This is not necessarily bad, you may allow another to take care of you, treat you or cook for you or decide which movie to see tonight. (C&I, Ch. 1, Anatomy of Control…)

Other-responsibility – There is a scale of responsibility between full responsibility, at 22.0 on the scale and above, down to total ‘other-responsibility’ at 0.0, Death. Complete negation of responsibility is complete admission of being under the complete control of the environment, i.e., Apathy at 0.2. Assumption of full responsibility is a statement of control of the environment and persons within it, yet without necessity of actually controlling. (C&I, Ch. 2, More Responsibility? Absolutely!)

Over-randomity – We go frantic or become overwhelmed when the pace is too quick, ‘Excess-randomity’ or ‘Over-randomity’. Over-randomity then, is too much confusion, motion or activity, unstable pattern of movement or behavior. (C&I, Ch. 2, More Responsibility? Absolutely!)
