The work of children is play. And the purpose of play is to learn the distinction between imagination and reality.
And once we learn the distinction we are free to safely enjoy our imagination.
But when we don't learn the distinction our imagination can turn lethal.
For instance our imagination may tell us that we will be rewarded with 72 virgins in heaven if we drive two commercial aeroplanes full of civilian passengers into two tall buildings full of civilian workers.
Or our imagination may tell us that MBTI will help us understand our personality and the personality of others and help us all get along when in reality MBTI is used as a form of social control.
This wouldn't matter much except I understand two million Americans every year do the MBTI test. And these are the people running the world.
Of course more than two million Americans believe in the talking snake in Genesis so perhaps we shouldn't be surprised they also believe in the imaginative MBTI.
So MBTI, talking snakes and 72 virgins are all pathologies of childhood.
Those who believe in them have failed to learn the distinction between imagination and reality.
