I don't see as much difference between 7 and 5 as poriferan says there is.
They can help eachother. Learning how shit is, makes adventuring at lot easier. Adventuring gives you plenty of experience to learn the world.
I imagine it's far deeper than that, but on the surface, I don't see any real conflict. Contrast maybe, but... I'm kinda a contrast to myself a lot of the time.
