Better distinguish field types in Reports, Rules, Data Spaces, etc.

Have a situation where I have two fields on SF object that are named the same thing - one is a formula, one is a picklist.  

Ultimately I agree that there shouldn't be two fields named the same, but as I was going to try and choose one in a report, I noticed they are both listed as a Text field.  



Thought it would be helpful to add a picklist icon to fields that are of type picklist.

Will discuss the same with the Product team and get back to you about the possibilities

Somehow the system knows the difference, because if I add them both to a data space, then I can tell which is which:
