Spelling bee word again.
Tendency to avoid or move away from the stimulus.

Not to be confused with "ambient," in the immediate vicinity ("within one's ambit").
Is there "adient" also, meaning tending to move toward the stimulus?
Just think of the Anagrams possibilities:
--adient + s + r = strained
--adient + o + i = ideation
--adient + e + l = entailed
--adient + g + r + h = threading

I thought "abient" was a stage direction, similar to "exeunt".
