I don't understand why my default values that I set in models I inherits from somewhere elses doesn't work. In other words, default="DEFAULT TEXT" doesn't work in entities I will eventually inherits from. 

Why isn't working... and what would be the alternative? I tried setting only the the default property on the destination model, but odoo complains this is not valid. Any other idea?

I like to surround myself with brave, creative people.

My motivation for learning different technologies and algos drive me. I love challenges of a steep learning curve which I believe makes me a better learner. I have a strong desire to learn different technologies, which would enable me to become a full stack developer.

 Regarding:what would be the alternative

Override the default_get Like:

def default_get(self,cr,uid,fields,context):
#Now update the res here.

In ODOO Admin can also set the default value of fields from   Setting->Technical->Actions->User defined Defaults .
For example for setting default account_id in account.invoice :

  1. Go to Setting->Technical->Actions->User defined Defaults.

  2. Create a record  for your model.

  3. Inside name place your filed name(account_id).

  4. Inside model place your model name(account.invoice).

  5. inside Default value  place the default value (id_number)
