flexing (or flexion)


Explanation:
This seems to be a new use for the word "flexing", and I found only one reference to it in regard to this new psychological method called "psycho-geometrics". The method doesn't seem to have spread much yet, so an equivalent in French may not have been coined yet. It may well be "flexion" but I believe the word "flexing" will remain in French as it often happens.
