That description matches the typical user I meet during workshops.

Granted, there is a strong bias towards new users in our workshops.
If you already know everything, why sit through a workshop? :)

But even the more experienced users I've met rarely require a huge
amount of control. Rather, they want to acquire thorough understanding
of what the tool will do in a given situation. And then they make the
best out of the behaviour they understand and features the tool
provides.
