IDEMPOTENT: unchanged when multiplied by itself

its usage:

A function f : D -> D is idempotent if
f (f x) = f x for all x in D.
I.e. repeated applications have the same effect as one

My next word is "aficionado"

IDEMPOTENT unchanged in value following multiplication by itself
comes from latin
idem(same) Ad Idem Of same mind ie as one; agreed
"the parties are ad idem on this point"
potens(having power)
is also used in potential,impotent
I could not find an image on web to relate the word with image,
but including an image will be good idea
my turn
abulia

My next word is "aficionado"


oops missed that one,
a person who likes, knows about, and appreciates a usually fervently pursued interest or activity
it comes from Spanish aficionar to engender affection
the word affection comes from latin affectiōn disposition or state of mind or body(positive most of the time)
other words derived are affectionate
derived from Spanish root it's used for fans of bullfight
can also be used for movie buffs and other fanatics
