How do you define the word? What does "switch" mean to you?

I define "switch" as "having a different part come forward/be the most obvious one present."

I think I tend to use it for the more abrupt/less-intentional switches: when a part comes forward without clear communication, and without it having been planned.

When I describe myself as "switchy" it usually means that parts are switching frequently, without great communication, and we won't really be able to predict who will be in charge at any given moment. This tends to go along with being pretty spaced out.


As I write this, I realize that I don't tend to find it troubling to shift and move between and among parts, as long as we're pretty well aware of who is present, and communicating with each other. It's only when the switch is fairly abrupt and unexpected that I think of it in terms of switching. Hmm. :hmm:
