There's allot about blanks that we don't understand. Perhaps when they try and act normal is when they repel people.

Ciaphas Cain trusts Jurgen completely and seem not too upset about his presence, Jurgen also seemed to survive in the guard without getting shot before he met cain.

And Eisenhorn fell in love with her but he stated that anytime he touched her it hurt, do to being a psyker (though the first part has been ages since I've read Eisenhorn.. Also Ravenor kept her body in stasis after she was (killed/mortally wounded). It may be a effect that one can become accustomed to and just because of the effect doesn't mean people will always despise them, though their fuse may be shorter around a blank.

There are degrees of Pariah, just as there are with psykers. The strongest generally end up as Culexus assassins, while the likes of Jurgen and Bequin seem to be on the lower end of that scale. Jurgen's effect seems to come across as a smell (aided I'm sure by an actual smell) that makes it unpleasant to share a small room with him, and Bequin doesn't seem to upset the non-psykers in Eisenhorn's warband too much. People might not be very comfortable around them, but nobody is being driven to an unreasoning urge to kill them.

I'm sure there are many variations in between either end of the scale.

Yeah as many have said its a bit of both. I would agree that when they enter the material realm they do see the materialistic details that you and I are accustomed to. However, though we are attracted to familiarities in traits, emotions, reactions, of the body, I think daemons pay attention to our soul fire. I think its probably a more simplistic way at looking at a person as well. Souls are also energy to them, as said in The Talon of Horus, the Warp is essentially made up of souls.
