Model A as an Information Processing Model
Recently, I was interested to academic models of processing. They may seem dumb and useless, and usually are, because they're very simplistic and are general knowledge, but they pretty much "define" intelligent systems.
It may define computers, as well as it may define the human brain.
The most traditional model is the three-component model which has components for input, processing, and output : "input is processed to make an output".
Input -> Processing -> Output
We can also imagine a 2-component model "input compares to and modifies output", but comparison and modification are like "processing".
Input -> Output
We can also imagine some consistent 4-component model, which there's an additional component of Storage :
Input -> Processing -> Output
and Processing <-> Storage
I'm wondering if other components are possible, but I'm retaining the three-component model for now.
Accepting functions have Strong Input
Conscious functions have Strong Processing
Strong functions have Strong Output
This is a definition I can give for functions.
I'm making an analogy with file systems :
Functions 1 and 7 are Read/Write
Functions 2 and 8 are Read Only
Functions 3 and 5 are Write Only
Functions 4 and 6 are Locked
I hope someday I'll know how the +/- thing may fit into something like this, i.e. what variable should we add or such. We have 16 functions and elements, not just 8. - and + aren't the same thing. - is about objective correlations, whereas + is about subjective dependencies.
Recently, I found an analogy between the Big Three and IM :
Serotonin level (mood) defines the level of motivation for Inputting
Norepinephrin level (stress) defines the level of motivation for Processing
Dopamine level (drive) defines the level of motivation for Outputting
This is an interesting take on the model
What exactly do you mean by "strong"?

Also, your diagram looks symmetrical and thus you're missing one half of the processing circuit. Consider the idea that there are two persons, and not one, living inside the mind. One is the primary manifestation, and other, hidden, is your internal dual.
But why would it be this way (referring to initial post) and not another way?
By "strong" I mean that you're likely to do so. Strong means there is 62% of strength and Weak means there is 38% of strength. (Law of golden proportion)

Again, it's LIKELY to be this way. It may be another, but if you act in another way, it won't be very comfortable for you, and may sometimes seem unnatural to others.

Blocks C, D, C' and D' have Weak Output
(possible alternate hypothesis on input)
Index 1 functions have Strong Input
Index 2 functions have Weak Input
Hypothesis 2 :
We don't perceive isolated aspects of reality, but contexts of perception. i.e. a block of 2 information elements.
On each context of perception, there is :
- A black element and a white element.
- A rational element and an irrational element.
- A process element and a result element.
- Two static or two dynamic elements.
There are eight contexts of perception :
They coincide with the sub-clubs of clubs : Heavy Researchers, Light Researchers, Light Pragmatists, and so on.
Hypothesis 3 :
Blocks A and A' have 4 dimensions : Tm, St, Nr, and Ex
Blocks B and B' have 3 dimensions : St, Nr, and Ex
Blocks C and C' have 2 dimensions : Nr and Ex
Blocks D and D' have 1 dimension : Ex
