Mensagem:  The words in the first column are modal auxiliaries - they carry a personalised and subjective sense.

Those in the second are their lexical counterparts.  They carry a more generalised, externalised sense of obligation likelihood etc.

I think you should go. Custom determines that you ought to go

should = ought to

must = have to

can = be able to
