തോന്നുക = think involuntarily

താന്തോന്നി = rogue; one who acts based on the thoughts that arise in his mind, almost to the detriment of others

There is a component of involuntariness in this kind of thinking.

What is the pure mallu word for thinking voluntarily? "വിചാരിക്കുക" would have worked, but it is originally from Sanskrit. So are "ചിന്തിക്കുക", "ആലോചിക്കുക".

ഓര്ക്കുക is voluntary thought - but it is specific to recollecting something that happened in the past.

How about നിനയ്ക്കുക? It might mean "to assume".
