    Are you Picky? What is your stance on trying out new things? either it be food, a cool activity, or a new video game, is there anything specific that prevents you from trying new things, or are you all for it?

    I tend to be pretty scared at trying new foods, and some things. I'm more open when it comes to games though, but anything horror related, that is a no no for me. xD

    I'm afraid of trying new things, but honestly I wouldn't be anywhere if I didn't. I love trying things out, even if I fail greatly. It's just interesting to see whether or not you're going to really enjoy something or not.

    It really depends on what the "thing" is. If it's a video game or restaurant, sure, I'll give it a go! If it's a thing like.... Watching an anime, I'm way more picky.

    It also depends on the person that is recommending it to me.

    Trying new food is pretty normal, but I have to say I'm the most open in trying new styles for my art, or experimenting with it. While I fear shifting styles, I do like trying new ones! I can't think of a lot of other things I'm afraid of trying unless it's athletic related. I don't like getting hurrrrt.

    I'm usually cool with trying new things, as long as people don't try to pressure me into them because that will make me wanna do 'em even less. I'm a picky eater and I'm very iffy with smell and texture so trying new foods can be hard sine is not something I really care for.

    When it comes to most technology, I'm generally not too picky about experimenting. The same can be said about food. When it comes to everyday habits though, I can sometimes be stubborn about "changing" my ways. It might take a little self-motivation.

    With food and stuff I'm definitely open for new things. Other things I'm not too keen on trying something new, and I'll agree with Kouhai, for me too it sometimes depends on the person recommending as well.

    Depends on what I'm trying.
    If it's something like a new food, sure.
    If it's something like bungee jumping, I'll be noticeably scared lol

    Though of course we learn the things we like by trying them :>

    I'm definitely hard to motivate when it comes to trying new foods. If it's like an anime or a video game, I'll give it a go if I can get my hands on it and someone I trust recommends it. after I do preliminary research, of course

    I don't really like change, but I do like trying new things out at least. I have to give everything a try, so I pretty much do it.

    Food, video games and anime are all things I am willing to try very easily. You never know if you'll like it or not, but at least it's worth a try. Anything besides that I'm not so easy with, such as real-life activities. I won't just take someone's recommendation, I need to really want to do it myself.

    Most of the time I don't like trying new things but sometimes I have a lot of fun trying new things (but only after someone else has tried it unless it is a first for them and I).

    I remember one experience not too long ago, I was in Bali with my family. We were at the water sport area and I saw this thing flying in the air and thought, 'Wow! I wanna try that!'

    That flying thing was called the flying fish and I tried it with my sister. We flew only twice but let me tell you, as we were dragged on the ocean surface, you could feel every bump and wave as we sped along to get airborne. It was a lot of fun even though I did manage to hurt my arm by gripping the clasp a bit too hard.

    I waver a lot on whether I'm a picky guy or not. For example, I love trying new games, but I'm not so fond of trying new food. Really, it depends on what the thing is.

    I like to try new things most of the time, I'd like to make the most out of my life without doing anything too dangerous. :)

    I can be wary of trying new foods and I get the fear I might have a allergic reaction or get sick from it, but I like trying new activities and games if they seem fun~

    It really depends on my initial impression of something. If there's anything that suggests I won't enjoy it, I won't go for it. Otherwise I'm pretty open to trying new things uvu

    It really depends. I don't like being out of my comfort zone and if someone pushes me to try something, I'll push back. But if I decide that I want to do something, I'll do it with all my strength. I'm more weary on trying new foods though.

    I don't mind trying new things, but I am very wary of trying things that I know very little about. I'm cautious above all else, especially with food. I have to be careful with new food that I try, sadly- I'm sensitive and allergic to many things, so there's a ton of food I cannot eat. Other than that, if something seems fun, I'll most likely try it. I may sit on the sidelines and watch how other people do it first, but once I get a feel for something, I usually join in!
