Glossary of Significant Concepts in Parental Acceptance-Rejection Theory
An individual's relative freedom from the felt-need for positive response. That is, the independent person is one who does not often feel the need to rely on others for emotional support, encouragement, reassurance, comfort, and so forth. Emotionally healthy individuals are able to make these bids from time to time as needed. The important issue is how often and how intensely they feel the need for such positive response. Independence is distinguished in PARTheory from self-reliance. (See dependence; defensive independence; personality subtheory

Web Dictionary of Cybernetics and Systems
Self-sufficiency concerning information. Independent SYSTEMs are closed to information. variation outside the boundaries of independent systems do not affect the variation within. There is no input. In statistics, two variables are independent if the concurrence of their values is mere chance, e.g., zero correlation . In logic and set theory, two variables are independent if the relation between them is the mere cartesian product of two properties. Two individuals are independent if each does what he wants to do, neither having to consider the behavior of the other. A clock is designed to be independent of variation in temperature, geographical location including gravity while it is correlated with other clocks and communicating its output state s to an observer. Independent systems may be a source but not the receiver of communication (see closed system , closure ). (Krippendorff )).
