Maybe this is more of an INTP question, but I guess this is something I'd like to hear about from NTs in general.
From what I understand, INTPs develop or generate a model of the world or people they interact with. Please correct me if my assumptions are wrong or if my understanding is incorrect. I can somewhat understand the modeling thing as I had to learn it for my career (engineering) but I don't apply it to people or how I look at the world and so for me it's a bit foreign to understand.
If the model is incorrect, or was (accidentally) developed for a specific person/scenario, what is the process like to update the model? Does it take a long time or is it relatively quickly? How do you know when the model needs to change?
I want to clarify that I'm not actively trying to change someone else's model, but that this person brought up to me that he assumed something about me and my behavior based on the model of the type of relationship we have. This assumption turned out to be incorrect and he mentioned this realization on his own to me recently. So I'm curious about that process and what goes on underneath the hood, so to speak.
