MOTIVATOR, 1. an aggressive or destructive act received by the person or one of the dynamics. It is called a motivator because it tends to prompt that one pays it back–it “motivates” a new overt. (HCOB 20 May 68) 2. something which the person feels has been done to him, which he is not willing to have happen. (HCO Info Ltr 2 Sept 64) 3. an act received by the person or individual causing injury, reduction or degradation of his beingness, person, associations or dynamics. (HCOB 1 Nov 68 II) 4. an overt act against oneself by another. In other words, a motivator is a harmful action performed by somebody else against oneself. (8ACC-14, 5410CM20)
MOTIVATOR HUNGER, 1. a motivator is called a “motivator” because it tends to prompt an overt. It gives a person a motive or reason or justification for an overt. When a person commits an overt or overt of omission with no motivator he tends to believe or pretends that he has received a motivator which does not in fact exist. This is a false motivator. Beings suffering from this are said to have “motivator hunger” and are often aggrieved over nothing. (HCOB 1 Nov 68) 2 . Homo sapiens goes around trying to get force applied hard enough so that he gets sympathy for it and we call that motivator hunger. (2ACC-30B, 5312CM21 )
MOTIVATORISH CASE, a preclear who only gets off motivators in a session. The motivator case is well aware that each motivator answer is not truly real, but reactively he is incapable of looking at the cause side of the picture and considers any effort on the part of anyone to attempt to get him to do so as an effort on the part of that person to punish him or to make him guilty. Such a person has many overts of blaming others and uses any motivator as a justification of his overts against others. (BTB 12 Jul 62)
MOTIVATOR-OVERT ACT, whereby something is done to the preclear and then the preclear does the same thing to somebody else. (PAB 18)
