Picky vs selective--how do you define it?

There are lots of posts on these boards about "picky" eaters, but people seem to define the term in different ways. It can mean anything from "won't try anything new" to "only eat whole foods" to "food snob" to "severely disordered eating." I'd always thought of myself as a picky eater, but what I really mean is please don't serve me any flavored coffee--white chocolate--American cheese--cake from a box--fake sugar--stuff from a dirty kitchen, but yes, I'll gladly try that new Iranian recipe you just got off the web.

If you think you're picky, what do you mean by it?
