Note that although CHAR is an explicite string type within MySQL,
MYSQLI_TYPE_CHAR is interpreted the same way as MYSQLI_TYPE_TINY, which is the TINYINT numeric type within MySQL.
As a consequence, you cannot distinguish these two column types by using their respective type index, as both are set to integer one (1).
