I've had this thought for a while. Is Model A really a "model" in the strict sense of the word? Does it model anything? Or is it just called a "model" for lack of a better word? Is Freud's concept of Ego, Super-Ego, and Id also a model then?
To me, the socionics Model A seems like a general description of static perceptual traits and basic psychic characteristics. Changes, or events, or not "modeled" by the "model." I understand what a "weather model" is, because it models probable future changes in weather. Model A does not actually "model" anything.
Has anyone else had this thought?
