pattern # 3 used for deductive reasoning; and pattern # 4 for discovering, qualifying, and defining premises. 

Although the categories and their syntatical relationships provide us with the sense that we are dealing with Peirce's concepts of  logical methods, it's important to remember that, in spite of the fact that we are attempting to describe them, the non-verbal process we are discussing are not only non-verbal, they're also non-symbolic. They are habitual mental patterns by which we create and interpet symbols.

The model is not yet complete, however. The seemingly static nature of the categories and their syntatical relationships do not give us the information we need to understand these non-verbal methods as dynamic processes.  For that we need to know the action components which play out within the categories as patterns of action.

Look now at the completed chart of the Relational Thinking Styles model. Notice that the action components have been combined into action patterns, and placed these patterns into the context of categories according to their syntactical relationships.
