In the setting of outcome oriented decision taking (OODT), decisions are scarce events occurring in between of
many other events which are not decisions. Activities of and agency by an agent may occur without any decisions being taken by that agent, with choice and action determination
as the only mechanisms for actively resolving uncertainty about future behavior. Such behaviour will be referred to as decision taking avoiding agency.
A model, or rather a preliminary qualitative description,
of decision taking avoiding agency is provided for systems consisting of or controlled by a solitary natural or artificial agent, as well as for a group of agents.
