    I've never been very picky. I'm game for pretty much anything as long as it's fresh. I won't eat some things I guess, like bagged salad, because it starts to smell really awful (at least to me) after like 2 days. Or when cheese gets moldy and people just cut the moldy part off and act like nothing happened

    I guess I'm pretty picky about foods.

    As for smells? I really don't see how gasoline and skunk smell bother people. :/

    I'm only a picky eater when i'm on a calorie restricting diet. I was never a picky eater as a child, and i'm willing to try any food once.

    I've been told by my parents that I'm a picky eater... but I don't see how insisting to eat healthily (aka to choose not eat big chucks of fat etc) is necessarily "picky". I'm very willing to try out new and different sort of food. I just hope it's not overly spicy because I can't tolerate it all that well. So I guess I'll compromise and say I'm somewhat picky.

    not at all, almost everything can be good if prepared right.

    some people are lousy cooks, though.

    depends on your definition. i haven't eaten meat or poultry since i was 8, and have had periods of veganism. HOWEVER i love exotic, spicy foods (generally). i only like fast foods on occasion, though, and will only eat pastries or bread if i know they'll be good (or if i'm really hungry).

    That sounds more like a Sensing thing than an Introverted thing.

    I love to try different foods, and like intense flavors from spicy to bitter to rich. The only one food I really dislike are mushrooms.

    The pickiest eaters I know are all EXSPs and a few INTXs.

    Nah.

    EDIT: What the hell? Just noticed BlackCat's response, which, besides the two sentences, is identical to mine.

    So bizarre.

    More editing: Okay, I realize it may not be that weird in itself, but it still is a bit for me.
