Supporters find it to be a theoretically anchoring and conceptually enriching foundation that allows for psychoanalytic psychology to remain (and become) a ubiquitous and scientific enterprise. Modell (1981) reminds the profession that metapsychology serves three important functions: first, a selection of psychological phenomena could be termed universal in the sense that they are characteristic of the human species; secondly, a set of assumptions upon which a psychological system can be founded and made explicit; and, thirdly, metapsychology functions as a modeling device, an imaginary entity, and experimental thinking.
