SimWord of the Day: Trigger

Triggers are almost the opposite of primary variables. While primary variables tick up or tick down, always ready to be corrected and for which compensated, triggers are "all or nothing" events.

When studying what an expert knows/does, the question is, "what are events that if happen are (at least temporarily) irreversable and that change the dynamics? "

In the game world, this might include your characterer, after losing health (a primary variable), finally dies (a trigger).
  • In the real world, after working hard to improve productivity (a primary variable), you might get a promotion (a trigger).
  • After working hard to figure out a solution with a perspective client (a primary variable), you might get the contract (a trigger).
  • After building support for your bill (a primary variable), you might get a favorable vote (a trigger).
Of course there are bad tiggers as well: losing a big client, or having a facctory break down.

Triggers and primary variables go hand in hand. Talking about one without talking about the other misses the point.

Clark,

Interesting, when I think of a trigger, I think of something that comes first and causes something to happen (this triggers...that). If I understood your explanation, a trigger in the “Simworld" is actually a resulting consequence (good or bad)...did I read that right?

Thanks, I am enjoying your SimWords.

Dana,

Thank you so much for adding the most critical element to the definition. Any definition of triggers need to include both the condition that sets it off, and also the consequences (often multiple consequences or a selection of multiple possible consequences).
