An entirely different perspective focuses on the inhabitant's actual functioning. The person is continually in need of being oriented in the course of the behavior-setting happenings. In this perspective, the program or the rule structure of a behavior setting can be apprehended as a means of facilitating orientation and of relieving capacity load by the reduction of complexity (Kaminski, 1982). However, this interpretation refers only to one special aspect of processing behavior-setting participation.

In contrast to the Moore-EORA taxonomy, Gibson's descriptive articulation of reality is embedded in a consistent theoretical framework. It is mainly focused on a new, an "ecological" theory of perception. There are also similarities to Barker's ecobehavioral approach: Gibson, also drawing on concepts of biological ecology, has likewise applied functional principles in partitioning the "environment" subdomain. Like Barker's approach (with its ''behavior setting"), Gibson's approach has a particular focal calibration, namely, the perceiving and behaving individual (animal or person), guided by the affordances in the ecological, molar environment.
