Out of character (OOC) is usually concerned with role playing or fan fictions. It's when one person
1. either stops writing/typing as that character and speaks as them self to whoever is reading.

2. The character that is being used isn't acting like that character will act. Often happens because someone doesn't know that much about the fandom or just not very experienced with that character.

Often someone will try to warn that they will be Out Of Character at some points or in all.

Lying flat refers to a defeatist lifestyle in Chin, where people stop working, desiring material acquisition, and tap out of any social life – sometimes for good. By lying flat, young people are participating in a kind of non-cooperation movement, rather than surrendering themselves to China's oppressive work culture where they see little hope of social mobility.

When a character with an already well defined personality acts in a way that they normally would not. They do or say something that they as a character would not normally say, given the personality the writer has already assigned them. This happens very often when your show/book/story has a self-insert or Mary Sue
