It really doesn't make that much of a difference if you go from -10 to 40 or from 0 to 100 for everyday use, Kelvin would be far more difficult to use because you will always have a three-digit temperature.

>it is easier to visualise and estimate

I am pretty sure I can estimate the length of one meter or how heavy 1 kg is pretty well, it really doesn't matter what they were based on originally, they're just as practical for everyday use, you can go ask literally every person that's not American and they will confirm this and should their ever be a need to convert, I can do that in 1 second. I am 193cm tall, that means 1,93m. Finding out how many inches I am tall when I only know I'm 6'4" would be far more difficult.

It really only depends on what you're used to.

Just because you are raised on a specific scale doesn't mean it is more or less useful. You can get used to measuring temperatures in Kelvin, doesn't mean you should.

Fahrenheit is useful as a measurement of survivable extremes because, on a scale of 0 to 100, 0 is extremely cold and 100 is extremely hot. Both are ranges you can encounter on a day on Earth, and are within the limits that a human can survive in for a limited period of time.

The difference between the two systems (imperial vs metric) seems to be entirely based on what the use of the system will be used for. Imperial is based on the body; a foot is actually based on the human foot, and fahrenheit is based on the temperature of the human body. Metric was founded on measurable natural phenomenon.

Metric is used for scientific research because it is easy to do math with and convert. Imperial is used for measure that humans need to relate to because it is easier to visualise and estimate.

Metric measurements were found on grandiose scale and based on difficult math (like how a meter was originally defined on one ten millionth of the distance between the poles and the equator of the Earth), while the imperial scale was found on practical everyday things (like a pound was measured against a specific number of coins minted in the era of use).
