"Intentional" State of Mind
"Intentional" means more than that one voluntarily engaged in conduct or caused a result. Such conduct or the causing of the result must have been the person's conscious objective. A common means to describe conduct as intentional, or to say that one causes the result intentionally, is to state that it is done or accomplished "on purpose."
