Mental Models Box (Data)
This is the repository for the data used in the mentalmodelsbox.com website.

Models are stored as YAML files. The one liner, description, and example fields use Markdown. Use of HTML tags within Markdown is not supported.

id: some-id name: Mental Model Name oneliner: > Short overview of the model (preferably one line). description: > Longer description of the model. wikipedia: Link to Wikipedia article (if available). examples: - > An example of the model in use. - > Another example--the goal is to have at least two for each model. categories: - Category 1 - Category 2
File names use the following structure:
Models currently use one or more of the following categories:
If you are adding additional categories, please update past models with them (if applicable).

Most of the model information has been sourced from Wikipedia and a link to the corresponding article is provided for each model when available.
