Four Gear Catalyst

Working through a storyform this morning, I have Attitude as a Catalyst. Catalyst used to speed things up, was thinking of shifting through manual gears. So for Activity I’ll use

indifferent to
interested to
involved to

and the Inhibitor is rationalization, which could be

deflection to
an excuse to
a justification
a knowing lie

… (I know justification is a word already loaded, I’m going for levels of intensity avoiding retribution for ‘catering to your desires’ as the Dramatica Dictionary has it)

This is interesting…what’s it look like when you divvy out a quad to those?
