I'm not sure this particular concept or "dichotomy" or explanation or whatever you want to call it should be used.
For example, I've known Fe types who will automatically say that someone is wrong because they don't like that person.
In many ways, I'd prefer to take everything based on its own merits, but I do find myself scanning for who says things on the forum. For example, if I read something someone has written, I look at it, and kind of mentally withhold my judgement until I see who posted. Sometimes, I skim over it, and if I notice it's written by someone well respected by me, I'll give it full consideration. Other times, even if there's only a paragraph to read it, if it's someone that I can't be bothered with, I won't read it, which is a shame, because I think you can get something from everyone, regardless of how you feel about them.
Also, If I pick up a sustained sense of covert hostility directed at me, (ie: passive-aggressive or abrupt defensiveness) I begin to distance myself from that person. That I can see more as violating a code.
