I'm not sure I find that distinction useful, particularly when written communication can suggest oral tradition behavior.

I find it more useful to distinguish between people who are tentative in their beliefs (call it the skeptical temperament) and people who desire certainty.

From my perspective, the content of one's opinions is less important than how one goes about acquiring them and defending them.

Another dimension I find interesting is inner directed vs other directed. I see people of all opinions following the crowd ,or their team, regardless of where the evidence points.
