I wouldn't worry about it. I'm one of those people who overanalyzes everything and it has only lead me to putting roadblocks into my own way to the point where it got incredibly frustrating. I then decided to do it differently by using my ears a lot more and it has improved how I do things a lot. Like for example I used to mix things by looking at the volume meters of each instrument. That's incredibly stupid though because the it doesn't say anything about how loud an instrument playing in the track is. The same applies to EQs and frequency analyzers. They can show you things you might not hear and they're good for fixing that, but never make the mistake of looking at the frequency response of one track and try to get yours as close to that as possible, in my opinion that's the wrong approach.
Imo you should train your ears and carefully listen and only use any visual assistance to fix specific problems, they're not the be-all, end-all part of production.
