How does changing the offset "compensate for ones sense of rhythm"?

It doesn't change how the map plays to the beat, it simply shifts the timeline.
Also, pretty much only old maps are going to have the wrong offset and this is a pretty bad way on determining offset because it only gives you a general idea of if you're too early or too late - in your screenshot we can see that you hit notes too late too, and a lot can factor into this such as streams (nobody will ever perfectly maintain a long stream without having to compensate speed).
You should only be changing offset if you know for certain that it's off.
