What is the function of the tint slider in Lightroom?

In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (c) there's a Temp slider **which controls the color temperature of the photo**. To the left it creates a blue, cold looking image. To the right, an orange, warm image. This is easy to understand and easy to use.But then is the "Tint" slider. To one side, it creates a purple image. To the other, a violet image. I really don't understand the purpose of this slider.When I use it, I feel like I'm using the tint slider on an old NTSC television. What's the point of having a violet/purple image? How can I use it to improve my images? When I can't get the color right in my photos, I set the program to AWB and then tweak the temp slider, but I never touch the Tint one.**How do you use it?**
