    Default i imagine there are more than 8 functions in light of ...

    ..Reinin dichotomies.

    Classical Socionics is only based on 4 dichotomies, which gives rise to 8 functions. There are now 15 dichotomies.

    Does that mean there are more than 8 functions? (Maybe there could be functions called Negativist Feeling and Positivist Feeling, and many other!) There could possibly be more than 100 functions!!

    Does that mean Model A is now out of date?

    I personally don't think it means that .. it just happens to mean that.

    "Classical Socionics is only based on 4 dichotomies, which gives rise to 8 functions."

    The dichotomies seemed to be based on the functions, not vice versa.

    Yes maybe, but it's kind of like reverse engineering.
    The dichotomies are smaller units than functions. Functions are combinations of dichotomies.

    What I would say is that rather than dismiss Model A, there should be other models built based on the other possible functions (outside the famous 8), and then all the models can be combined. Perhaps even, Model A can be used as a format to accommodate the new functions .. so in total we will have lots of Model As with different types of functions, and a more all rounded Socionics theory.
