Patterns entrench themselves in our mental library through this process of encountering a situation, designing a solution, recognizing the same situation again, and recalling and applying the earlier solution.

The forces don’t have to be explicit. I never wrote them down before this post. But being aware of the forces makes it possible to critically analyze why you are making a specific design choice and how well that choice fits with the situation.
