Former is always 'unwelcome' and the latter is always 'welcome'. Both types of people are found around us. but the 'seeker' type of people are many and more than one who obliges others. Those who are confused about themselves you can't expect them to be helpful to you in any way. They want others' help/suggestions as the author has pointed out about them. These people are mentally immature. They may be a teenager too whereas the latter type of people is matured, sagacious and great.

Even this challenging situation would ease
If it is a subject matter related to us and if the other person is having some doubts in that subject and if approaches us we can clarify that as many times as he wanted. A person will act as a seeker sometimes and he may be an obliger in other instances. All depend on the individual and his position at that particular point.
