Etymologically, diagnosis means discerning, distinguishing. The everyday use of the word also implies seeking for the causes of a problem.
From a conceptual point of view, diagnoses are made to forecast and to exert influence on a reality. The level of the groundings upon which diagnoses are based defines its level of accuracy.
Diagnoses necessarily include intuitive aspects when approaching new situations. The difference between diagnoses does not lie in the intuitive approach, but in the processing of the information that intuition offers.
We have identified five levels of diagnoses:
1) Intuitive-analogical
2) Descriptive
3) Static
4) Causal
5) Functional

Intuitive-analogical diagnosis
The intuitive diagnosis approaches reality from the subjective perceptions of an individual. It does not use groundings to validate intuition, just intuitive analogies.

Descriptive diagnosis
The outcome of this diagnosis is a description of the visible physical aspects of a reality. This diagnosis can help to solve simple problems.

The static diagnosis
This diagnosis is based on the analysis of a reality. It is called static because in order to analyze something, we need to consider it as a fixed situation in time and circumstances. This diagnosis helps solving simple problems in areas which involve formal or rational components.

The causal diagnosis
The causal diagnosis is a systemic approach to reality. It is a systemic diagnosis that analyzes the functionality of a given reality. It sustains the solution of complex problems with low ambiguity levels.

The functional diagnosis
This diagnosis is based on the understanding of the functional concepts that underlay a given reality. The functional diagnosis is necessary for the solution of highly complex problems with ambiguous components.

The secure diagnosis
A diagnosis is “secure” when it includes all levels of analysis. Secure knowledge has been achieved when this condition has been fulfilled. Secure knowledge requires a high investment of energy. Therefore people often prefer to use reliable but not secure diagnoses, and control the evolution of a given reality in order to validate the accuracy of such diagnoses.
