Beliefs are fixed. Models and ideas are flexible.
Once you have a belief, its very difficult to change or get rid of.
Belief is based on emotional reasoning and wishful thinking to an unhealthy degree over rationality.
Models and ideas come from imagination and experience.
Beliefs are static. Models and ideas evolve.
Beliefs are not to be questioned. M&I can only work if they are questioned.
Beliefs, models and ideas are not to be confused with knowledge, which is the 'stuff' that they work with..
What do you think?

I think I am sure glad
my Beliefs, Ideas & Model of the world,
aren't anything like yours as those statements are easily proven wrong. Beliefs are easy to CHANGE, if you know how...
