Over using the Head method feels very pretentions and self induldgent as a writer and for the character, unless that attribute fits the character's personality, as in American Psycho with the long expository descriptions of the News (I think that was the band). The Heart can become drippy and messy with emotions, like wading through a swamp with beer goggles on, you can't seem to get anywhere of importance. You said it perfectly with the example of Survivor. Implementing both rounds and defines the characters and enriches the story overall. King definitly hits the heart with a sniper's aim, which has helped him many times but has also become a crutch, where his characters (I'm thinking of the trap of cliche, as in Under the Dome with Big Jim Rennie, the preacher/politician with a darkside) scream inauthenticity.
