Actually, now that I think of it, I always figured Worf for someone who was acting like how he thought a Klingon should, learning about them from books and such instead of living the culture.

I'm not sure Worf was COMPLETELY divorced from the Klingon culture--he was probably most like the monks on Boreth.
They writers agree with you, as this issue was addressed on the show more than once. Only in his later (DS9) years did Worf come to grips with "real" Klingon culture and life, with no small assistance from Jadzia. He was merely playing an idealized, "text book" version of what he thought a Klingon should be up to his time on the Enterprise.
