What is the difference between characteristic and typical?
I've seen that they both are used with kinda the same structure (be characteristic/typical of sb/sth)
Like: "This hospitality is characteristic of him." Or "Being late is typical of him."
But it seems to me that typical is usually used to show annoyance, but characteristic is not, right?
I wanted to know if it is possible to use typical with just the same meaning as characteristic, i.e. not to show annoyance, in a sentence like "This hospitality is typical of him".
And what about using characteristic to show annoyance, in a sentence like "It's characteristic of him to ruin his friends' parties"?
