Ultimately I've found that the best answer is to go with what is comfortable, but even with that said, I've altered my playing in ways that have made me better. Playing the guitar is like an individualized version of playing golf. Everyone's golf swing is going to be a little different, and even the pros make modifications to tighten their game up and make it more competitive. I don't want to have you thinking that guitar is competitive or anything but if you find that something you are doing is making a specific skillset harder, then find whatever modification works for you.
I used to be a floater. This sounds really silly but I had to be told that you can rest your hand on the bridge behind the saddles and not have an effect on your tone or sustain. I found that when I did that, for the type of music I want to play, I improved my picking hand proprioception tenfold by doing that. I also realized that when I am full strumming, that I don't have to stay in that position. I don't know if you would call what I do a hybrid style, but there it is, and it works great for me. Might not for you, but try some stuff. I would be interested in seeing what you come up with and how it works for you.
