Disposition, philosophy: the tendency for a certain behavior that is not yet occurred at the present time. Problem Statements containing dispositional terms, cannot be determined in their truth value, as the relevant event has not yet occurred. In classic logic can even be concluded that a sentence containing a dispositional term will be trivially true as long as the relevant circumstances are not realized. See also dispositional terms, counterfactual conditionals, law statements.

Rainer Reisenzein on Dispositions - Dictionary of Arguments

Corr I 59
Dispositions/emotion system/emotions/psychological theories/Reisenzein: In sum, emotional propensities seem to be structured in the form of two largely independent (or slightly negatively correlated) hierarchies of correlated dispositions, one for pleasant pleasant and the other for unpleasant emotions. This structure is compatible with appraisal theory. Cf. Diener, Smith and Fujita 1995(1); Schimmack, Oishi and Diener 2002(2)).
