    Ah yeah I do that to the max, until my new favorite food becomes utterly distasteful. I attribute it to time management too, new food discovery takes trial and error.

    I'm a very picky eater and I have a very keen sense of smell as well. And I expect to become even pickier when I'm older. Anyway, why would anyone taste anything that smells unpleasant? Ok, the durian might be an exception. I have periods of craving for a certain food product and they come and go.

    However, I'm willing to try anything at least once. How would I know otherwise whether I'd like it or not?

    I've found the answer through this 1980's Pop Song.

    Step Back into time as we recount on the wise words of Billy Joel..

    Uptown girl
    She's been living in her uptown world
    I bet she never had a back street guy
    I bet her mama never told her why
    I'm gonna try for an uptown girl
    She's been living in her white bread world
    As long as anyone with hot blood can
    And now she's looking for a downtown man
    That's what I am
    And when she knows what
    She wants from her time
    And when she wakes up
    And makes up her mind
    She'll see I'm not so tough
    Just because
    I'm in love with an uptown girl
    You know I've seen her in her uptown world
    She's getting tired of her high class toys
    And all her presents from her uptown boys
    She's got a choice
    Uptown girl
    You know I can't afford to buy her pearls
    But maybe someday when my ship comes in
    She'll understand what kind of guy I've been
    And then I'll win
    And when she's walking
    She's looking so fine
    And when she's talking
    She'll say that she's mine
    She'll say I'm not so tough
    Just because
    I'm in love
    With and uptown girl
    She's been living in her white bread world
    As long as anyone with hot blood can
    And now she's looking for a downtown man (That's you, Peguy!)
    That's what I am
    Uptown girl
    l
    I lied. This is a tribute to Peguy.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I'm an extrovert and I'm very picky about my foods, I also have an abnormally high sense of smell I guess that's why it was always hell to give me cough syrup or anti biotics when I was younger. I don't care what the label said...that shit did not taste or smell like bubble gum.

    I've been described as picky. I'm not quite sure it's accurate though - I'll eat most meats, grains, dairy, fruits, or junk food.

    It's veggies that I'm selective with. So many taste bitter, bland, or foul.

    I'll try anything, really. I love variety in my diet, as well... the only problem is keeping up with this desire. Too many cultures, too many spices, too many plants, too little time & availability. This is most likely the INTP talking, as INTPs like to seek variety (enjoy your INx-skewed data).

    Oh, and I'm a veggie, so perhaps that's forced pickiness. Though I don't really think so, since I'd enjoy eating the meat-laden entrees otherwise.

    I was an extremely fussy eater as a child. Ex-vegetarian too. More adventurous now but still picky in that I like clean, healthy food. I hate fast food for the most part.

    I'm quite introverted, yet I wolf my food down quickly. I'm not picky. Not really. I won't eat just anything, but then again, most people would say that, I suppose...

    I agree. Fresh and healthy is good. Fast food tastes...dead.
