    Criticizing the MBTI and arguing about it with people in this forum is a bit like going to church to argue with people that God doesn't exist.
    Criticism has positive as well as negative aspects. I don't think anyone is suggesting the approach should be determined as negative...

    (I'm staying off the church/argument idea, there is a big derail in it )

    LOL!
    I agreed with you to myself and then looked at your type.
    I have been happily married to an ISTP for 25 years,
    and he frequently cuts right through to the practical solution.
    He has rubbed off on me quite a bit.
