  1. Any type of behavior with a certain "object" (focus) that is in the value of the K parameter of that behavior.

  3. One of the Dispositions.
"Type of behavior" denotes one behavior rather than a variety (set) of behaviors, as with an Interest.

In this case, the word "object" is in quotes to separate it from the use of Object as one of the four basic reality concepts (OPESA). That is, it denotes a focus on something the person distinguishes (including objects). It does not require the person to focus on a material object and nothing else.
