A "behavior" is the way in which
someone expresses general character, state of mind, or a response to a
situation or other people. In other words, a behavior is an observable representation
of competencies or capabilities that demonstrate what it looks like to perform
the competency or capability. Typically, a number of behaviors comprise a
single competency or capability.
