Inadvertence is defined as an event or a fact that was not intended or anticipated. It is often unintentional, and can refer to either small details or larger occurrences. Incidents or facts that are inadvertent can vary from person to person and from situation to situation, but can typically be divided into two broad categories: accidental errors and unintentional consequences.

Accidental errors are usually caused by simple mistakes that result from a lack of attentiveness or concentration. These errors may include incorrectly slotted cards in a deck, mistyping a number in a text message, or leaving a pot of boiling water on the stove.
