11. That's not intent. It's state of mind.


Intent is the desire to achieve the specific outcome of, for example, killing someone.

Intent is specific. Throwing a brick through a window may show a depraved indifference to human life, but it's not attempted murder unless the state can show it was thrown with the intent that it actually kill someone.
