While in work and business, I've noticed that native speakers of germanic languages tend to assess through the use of hypothetical situations. For example, using or including a lot of questions based in hypothetical situations or information related to non factual content.
Does it means there's a prevalence of this kind of IEs or processing in those areas and culture?
Besides science, do you think this highly hypothetical kind of thinking, processing or assessment has any actual usefulness in practical fields/tasks or as benefit for companies?
Just to add context, my country has a notorious S preference in the generation and processing of information in formal and informal speech (likely ISxx, followed by xEE, SLE and IxI). Where the hypothetical language or the inclusion of information based in hypothetical situations rather than facts, experience and objects is seen as idle, delusive and impractical.
