Chapter 8 – Dynamic forms

Dynamic forms. Formes dynamiques. Dynamiske former.

Dynamic Forms / Time-directionsFormes dynamiques / Orientation temporelleDynamisk Form / TidsretningerDynamic forms are manifested through the large scale directional tendencies. Analysis of dynamic forms reveals form-building functions
Presence-orientedOrientation vers la présence NåværendeStable (or no) tendency; being directed toward neither future nor past.
Forward-orientedOrientation vers l’avantFremadlentTendency directed towards a future point in time and/or by an increasing tendency.
Backward-orientedOrientation vers l’arrièreTilbakelentTendency directed away from a past point in time, and/or by decreasing tendency.
NeutralOrientation indéfinieNøytralVague tendency or conflicting tendencies
Average (primary)Normale (primaire)Normal (primær)Average strength of function
Faint (secondary)Faible (secondaire)Svak (sekundær)Weak function
EmphaticForteVektlagtStrong function

Goal Attainment

Goal AttainmentAtteinte de l’objectifMåloppnåelseGoal attainment: a forward-oriented function attains its expected goal.
Blunted goal attainmentAtteinte atténuéeMålavrundingBlunted goal attainment: a forward-oriented function attains its goal but different dimensions arrive at different points in time.
Goal SuspensionRetard de l’objectifMålutsettelseSuspended goal attainment: the expected goal of a forward-oriented function is first suspended, but arrives later.
Goal evasion / cancellationRefus de l’objectifMålunnvikelseGoal evasion: in full goal evasion the goal is not reached. In partial goal evasion it is not reached fully or not in the way expected.
