I guess there has been a lot of "pigeonholing", "self-pigeonholing" and "excusism" going on with typology as a backing (I am guilty as well).
But can people relate positive uses of typology In Real Life?
For me the clearest positive use is in "lateral thinking", putting on different "hats" (S vs. N, I vs. E, T vs. F, J vs. P, Ne vs. Se, Se vs. Si ....).
This allows us to consider perspectives that we might not otherwise.
I also cosidered using it for a short hand for people I know, but I find that it is hard for me not to pigeonhole people once I do this. But I suppose if done without pigeonholing, this could help understand someone else.
I was wondering if people had positive experience of using type in real life (not just for speculation)?
