Are there any particular types which would be uncomfortable with hypothetical situations being used in conversation? In particular, I'm fond of using hypothetical situations to cut through extraneous details and get to the heart of an issue, or to try to illustrate certain concepts. As an example of the former, if we are discussing some economic system, I might say: "Suppose the system is free of corruption and political interference, and all participants strictly adhere to the law. Then...." This would reflect not reality, but an idealized version of the system which shows its intrinsic advantages or flaws, and would give us an understanding of its basic properties. As an example of the latter, there are cases in which an isolated aspect of reality can be modeled as a system wherein certain inputs yield certain outputs; a hypothetical situation might alter one of those inputs to see the effect on the outputs, and thereby allow us to gain a better appreciation of the system's functioning as a whole. One such hypothetical scenario would be: "Suppose men became pregnant instead of women; how would this affect gender roles?" This obviously ignores biological processes, but that doesn't matter, because we are only interested in social ones. However, someone I've typed as ILI is fond of saying "false implies anything" when I posit such situations (which is a misappropriation of a theorem in logic -- namely, the principle that from several contradictory axioms one can derive any statement whatsoever -- to a situation in which it does not apply; hypothetical scenarios may be counterfactual, but they are not logically inconsistent in their premises, given their scope). I thought that maybe - or -PoLR types would tend to be the ones who dismiss such hypothetical scenarios out-of-hand, but I'm evidently mistaken. So are there particular categories of hypothetical scenarios that do or don't appeal to certain types? Is an affinity for hypothetical scenarios in any way type-related?
