Is there a lesson about this particular joseki choice? (Approach to 3-4 point and attach below)

Theresia There are many lessons that treat the situation that one approaches the 3-4 point and attaches below (e.g. Kobayashi opening, Chinese opening, joseki lectures for certain pincers.). For me the decision when the 3-4 point owner should stretch into the corner and when to make the tigermouth seems totally random. Is there a lesson that explains the difference?

E.g.:
Black Q3 (3-4 point)
White Q5, (5-4 approach)
Black plays a pincer or O4
White R3 (attach below)
Black R2 (hane)
White R4 (pull back)

Now: Black S2 or P2? (into the corner or defend shape outside)

And yes, I am aware that it should depend on the other stones around, but how does it depend on them?
