Alien psychology

I've recently been reviving an experimental conlang, iljena. In iljena,
each word is a noun-verb compound, describing the role of one participant
in the action described by the sentence. To the ljn, it is not natural to
consider objects separately from actions, or actions in isolation from objects.

Before developing iljena further, I'd like to work out a bit more about the
ljn themselves. What other psychological characteristics do people think
might be associated with the world-view described above? People can either
give detailed reasoning for their ideas, or just free associate whatever
comes into their heads. I'll sit back and see what seems interesting.
