I get the feeling there's some sort of disagreement happening here, but I'm not sure what it is yet.
Marshal, what you wrote makes perfect sense to me. I would never consider the differences between these kinds of judgments one of color. Purpose - certainly - is part of it. And might even be the whole difference, depending on how one defines purpose.
But might point was to say the differences were large—larger than even purpose. I think Ralph is on it when he talks about how people respond to the judgments. And that part of it too.
If I didn't make that clear, I apologize.
So, when you say there's a difference in purpose—Sure! And when you say there's all this other stuff that flows from that purpose! YES! And I was simply saying that stuff that's flowing. Huge.
Mixing them all up... Huger still! I haven't seen them prioritized successfully. (As you point out from your High School example, individual priorities for judgments seem to work just fine.)
If I misunderstanding something, I'd love to hear more of your thoughts on the matter.
