“I would define orientation in this way: n. 1. a state of existence where a person is accurately perceiving the environment. 2. an appropriate positioning of oneself within the environment. orient. 3. (verb transitive). an act of appropriately repositioning oneself within the environment. 4. an act of repositioning by oneself to achieve accurate perception. The principle of disorientation is more complicated to pin down. It would be easy to simply say disorientation is the opposite of orientation. Based on the definition of orientation above, disorientation would be: n. 1. a state of existence where a person is not accurately perceiving the environment. 2. an inappropriate positioning of oneself within the environment. disorient. 3. (verb transitive). an act of inappropriately repositioning oneself within the environment. 4. an act of repositioning by oneself to achieve inaccurate perception.”
