Easy – that's an "overreactor" ;-)

comment Single word for cast and crew of a movie
Let me give you an example: Bruce Willis was not credited for his role in Four Rooms, but he was still an actor in that movie. Likewise, Ashton Kutcher was not credited for Cheaper by the Dozen. These things happens, sometimes by mistake, sometimes deliberately. The opposite happens as well, mostly by mistake, but also deliberately; Alan Smithee springs to mind.

That's not what I'm talking about. Being in the credits and being a participant in making a film are two distinct concepts with a high level of correlation. Being "credited" means that your name is in the credits, nothing more, nothing less.

Not really. You may work on a movie without being credited for whatever reason, and vice versa. The concepts should correlate, naturally, but they are distinct.

comment Are synonyms always bidirectional?
Perfect synonyms applies to all cases describing an absolute condition. You either are x or not x. Extending your example: Words related to being pregnant/expecting/gestating/knocked-up.

comment What's the term describing employer-employee and similar role relations?
Possibly, but the problem I find with hierarchy is that it requires some kind of chain-of-command, or subservience relation. Take doctor-patient for instance. Where's the hierarchy? Who's the boss? The doctor that prescribes a treatment, or the patient that buys a service?

The complement to teacher is student. Sounds pretty good.
