One of the most obvious sources of reverse consequences is the provocational nature of many interventions. While this pattern is most familiar with regard to actions intended to punish or deter behavior defined as hostile or deviant, it applies in a broader sense to the arousal, incitement, or stirring up of any attitude, desire, or passion, either individually or collectively, that leads to a reversal of intended outcomes. While there are probably as many types of provocation as there are latent affective drives, four types are especially common: the provocations of illegitimate control, implicit threat, truncated therapy, and enticement.
