Let's define some overlapping conceptual categories:

  • πŸ“ Concepts MOC|Concepts: A concept is a pattern, truth, or mechanism recognized and given a name.
  • Mental Models are specific readily-available patterns or mechanisms thatβ€”when applied to a current situation or thingβ€”allow for efficient, optimal action. Great for strategic agency and in-the-moment adaptability.
  • Metaphors are primarily for relating unlike things. Great for creative expression and a means unto itself.
  • Refraction Thinking are primarily for broadening perspective and deepening understanding. Great for reviewing, planning, empathizing, and meditating.
