A review, analysis, and synthesis of past definitions and usages of the foresight concept into a generic definition, in order to make the concept measurable has classified foresight as a behavior

Specifically, foresight has been defined as:

"Degree of analyzing present contingencies and degree of moving the analysis of present contingencies across time, and degree of analyzing a desired future state or states a degree ahead in time with regard to contingencies under control, as well as degree of analyzing courses of action a degree ahead in time to arrive at the desired future state."[1]
