Modern economics is based on, "The Wealth of Nations". And most important, modern economics is counter-intuitive.
Unfortunately most uneducated people still think intuitively, when modern economics, modern science and modern politics are all counter-intuitive.
So the average uneducated person does not understand what is going on around them, so they turn to intuitive nostrums to make sense of it all.
There are many intuitive nostrums to bury ourselves in but the familiar ones are the New Age, Astrology and MBTI.
MBTI is like the bucket to catch those who can't make sense of the counter-intuitive world we live in.
This is tragic on one level and comic on another, as we have been able to climb out of the bucket since 1776!
