Dual-processing model can't explain whole cognitive personality

  • If we use a dual-processing model to explain cognitive personality, some attributes will be left out.

    State 1:
    Abstract (A) or Concrete (C).
    Deterministic (D) or Organic (O).
    Execution (E) or Processing (P).

    State 2:
    Negation of all three dichotomies in state 1.

    Other attributes are attention, fluid intelligence, neuropsychiatric attributes (ADHD, AS, etc) and possible more attributes.

    Read about a cognitive personality theory which uses a dual-processing model here, it's called Cognitive-Experiential Self Theory (CEST).
