Question, from an interface-design/engineering point of view, what is then the rationale for EFS? To make the control column get heavier because (assuming working AOA sensors) we are approaching stall, so the pilot then naturally and instinctively trims nose up? Really?

Subsidiary question: what is the pilot's natural and instinctive reaction to being pushed back into his/her seat by +ve g when trimming up?
