For school I have to make a fact sheet about a chosen subject. I have no subject and nothing I'm interested in. -At least, not in facts.

I know there are no real practical implications for typology...
But there must at least be enough facts about it to fill a piece of paper?

Could you name some? The word fact, just freezes my brain.

There are many applications of MBTI in organization theory. I think many private companies do make use of it, though not extensively. Even my university makes use of it, though not to a great extent. This, of course, needs research. I do remember going to a random office once and seeing MBTI letters placed in everyone's cubicle.

Fact: it's based on Jung's Psycho Types.

Fact: It starts to mes with your head when you think about it for too long.

But, I guess that is everything...

The HR department at my university makes use of it, as does my psychiatrist.

I think you could get great marks by explaining demonstrating what about the MBTWI is not based on facts, as most people don't seem to be able to tell the difference.

Use Google scholar to search for psychological research papers on the correlations between MBTI types and measurable psychological traits/behaviours/MRI results.
Those experiments performed with vigorous scientific method can be quoted as fact. Even if this means removing all subjectivity and only leaving a statement of the results obtained without any interpretation.
