The oscillation here seems to be about the locus of control. Do you feel that this action lies within yourself and is initiated at your discretion, or is it dependent on another or generated by something in the environment? Do you have full control over whether or not you act, or is your action provoked or imposed?
This polarization is captured here as:
internal (ODD) v external (EVEN).
internally by your personal volition.are naturally produced and controlled
However: If a normally voluntary bodily movement is forced on you by someone or externally imposed by a machine, then this is usually about taking you through a procedure to help you learn or understand something.
A tennis coach shows you how to hit a forehand by decomposing the stages (readiness, back-swing, hitting, follow-through) and then moving your arm through those stages as they are named. Similarly a yoga teacher in helping you with an asana gives a series of instructions that control what you do with your body to reach the pose.

However: If you are going to reject external controls and insist on your personal internal decision about the procedure, then you must have a clear image of the exact steps that you are going to be taking.
When a person makes a complex dive into a pool—including movements like a half-pike, double somersault, full twist—there can be no reference to a manual or assistance from another person during the procedure. All movements need to be internally controlled through awareness of body position and an image of what is required at each stage.

However: You may allow another to decide what technique is to be used at a particular moment, and let yourself follow their instructions on its application. This external control occurs when there is a need for a particular desirable outcome that is more or less guaranteed by the alien technique.
A professional singer who does not use amplification will develop a particular technique that determines the projection and quality of sound. However, that singer may have to perform in a hall whose acoustics are very different from what is usual and where amplification is essential. There may then be a need to accept advice and use a different technique in order to produce the desired effect for the audience.

When China was dealing with the British in the 19th century, they deployed a repertoire of diplomatic responses to handle the demand to open up for free trade. These did not work with the European barbarians who altered tactics and applied a crude imperialistic code based on overwhelming force. The Mandarin regime did not abandon their response because it was based on deep beliefs based on historic experiences of handling intruders. (The absence of a more suitable response meant that the Western forces dominated for decades.)

However: If an intervention is forced upon you or you experience it as externally demanded—then it must flow from the way you are conceptualizing the situation. Instead of automatically applying your usual paradigm to govern what you do, you look deeper. You discover that the situation is a paradigm case in a paradigm that you know little about, but which you cannot ignore.
Doctors intervene to assist patients, but they may find their choice of drug or method of operation is blocked by the hospital system, and they are expected to use a different intervention. On checking further, they find that there is a demand to use the concept of cost-effectiveness if they wish to proceed.

However: If a choice is internally determined regardless of external pressures, then it must be because you have chosen to make a specific change, i.e. form a state, without much concern for the likely consequences.
In choice involving career development, the usual factors include existing openings, social pressures, family demands, financial needs and so on. However, if you sense in yourself that you want to escape the rat-race and develop your specific talent (e.g. writing, musical composition), then you will make a choice that forms your career unequivocally, and whose consequences are unpredictable.

However: If spontaneity seems externally controlled because it is a demand from another person or one you impose on yourself, then anything you do becomes a signal that you have accepted that control.
Spontaneity is required whenever you play a role: whether that is a social role (e.g. wife, Good Samaritan, campaigner) or a role in theatre. By appropriately spontaneous actions in that role, you send an unequivocal message (i.e. a signal) to relevant others that you accept the role.
