The current study concentrates to figure out how orderliness emerges possibly in the mind. A research emulation with random data was usable for generation of the hypothesis. The resulted hypothesis assumed that in a novel situation, quality of a stimulus evokes what kinds of flip-flop dynamic persons generate, and the flip-flop dynamic results in what kind of overt orderliness the persons produce. The variables between were the imaginary word, the concrete word, and the abstract word; planning, organizing, and arranging; the sentence without a regular arrangement, the deficient sentence, and the proper sentence. Structured observation was the method to obtain data. The number of the participants was 100 (53 men, 47 women). Matrix calculus was applicable to research causation with probabilities. Reliability was assed with Cronbach’s α-coefficient, and validity with χ2-test. The hypothesis corroborated, and the causal flip-flop dynamic referred to the direction that the same causal system dynamic deals with dissimilar referents in the mind, and results in different outputs. The essential result of the research was the causal flip-flop where after the inputs the process causes the process, and back again to the modified absorption before the outputs.
