惰性== dasei == (noun) inertia, habit, momentum




Left radical is one of the radical versions of 'heart/feelings'. Right radical is a character only found in Chinese, here used phonetically to express 'listless'. Thus, 'listless feelings', or laziness. Henshall suggests taking the right radical as 'left hand' (左), and 'meat' (肉), and as a mnemonic: 'Feel lazy and eat meat with left hand.'
