The quality of random
motivation or spontaneous
motivation that leads an individual or group to perform apparently out-of-the blue actions. The suffixe -age
, a pop culture cliche
meaning the quality of something, is used on this word to emphasize the usual reason for spontaneous action: the need for either conformity or its opposite. Another interesting thing about the word spontaneitage is that it is a prime example of itself - its creation was a seemingly random act construed by someone who was feeling a spontaneous motivation to make up a new word for the feeling, so as to distance himself from conformity.
"Michelle's dance move was a really good example of spontaneitage."
"Earlier, Peter was experiencing some hardcore spontaneitage when he shoved the card down his pants."
"It's not my fault, your honor. The spontaneitage inherent in the moment made me cheat on my wife."
