I like this a lot too Mono !
I think if you don't have this kind of insight it's easy to stray over into the area of (unknowingly) stereotyping people unjustifiably. It's like.... "this person must be <insert label> because they enjoy <insert activity>. Although a statement like this could be accurate in some cases it certainly isn't in all and like you said - we don't really want to be building walls where they aren't justified.
