I wouldn't say 7/16ths is an 'aggressive cut', uncommon for newer skaters who pretty much all end up in whatever house cut is available, often 1/2" or 5/8". They're not mistaking you for anyone else, don't worry haha.
Your plan going forward is sound. Try the different cuts; I would advise a 1/2" before making the jump to a comparatively shallow 5/8".
With that being said, be wary of requesting cuts in 1/16" increments. There will be plenty of sharpeners out there who will revert you back (unknowingly to you) to 1/2" or 5/8" because chances are, you won't notice a difference.
