The problem with your exposition is that you are trying to analyse a dynamic
process (psychsocial interaction) with static
categorizations (attitudes, person types etc). In other words you are following in the tradition of pseudo-science which tries to mimic the hard sciences by the assumption of an independent neutral a-temporal observer. This point has been hammered or exposed by the post-modernists with their scepticism of the operation of "theory seeking" , but more enjoyably, the point is captured by the anecdote about a conversation between God and Satan...
God and Satan are observing an intelligent mortal "thinking" about a problem.
Hey ! That guy is onto a piece of real knowledge...Aren't you worried he will become enlightened?
No chance!.. Watch him attempt to analyse it, take it apart, and render it useless.
