What is Element Type?

so I get categories, family types and family instances not element types.
What is element types in dynamo means in revit?

I found this part of the primer well written for explaining what an element type is.

Lemme know if that helped

Thanks. Element types are mostly connected to system families in Revit.

Correct. Families and Family Types refer to loadable families. Element Types refers to system and other non-loadable type objects.
