Synonyms of "Picky" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between picky and The relentless and uncompromising pursuit of perfection ?
A: Example. You're picking wild berries and there's lots of them. You will be picky about which berries you choose. You are still choosing among the possibilities offered.
You're not trying to grow the perfect berry to the exclusion of other things.
Q: What is the difference between picky and choosy ?
A: They are pretty much the same, but I think choosy refers more to making a choice, and picky refers to accepting or not accepting something (although, I guess, this is also a choice).
"She has been a picky eater all of her life. If the peas touch the potatoes on her plate, she will refuse to eat either one."
"I hate to go shopping with her. She is so choosy that it takes her 15 minutes to decide which avocado to buy."
"He is so picky about what he wears. I gave him some shoes for Christmas and he has never worn them."
"He is all dressed except for his shoes. He is trying to decide which pair to wear, and he is so choosy that we could be here another hour."
But, in general, they mean the same thing.
Q: What is the difference between picky and fussy ?
A: There is not a big difference between the two words, I think you could use them interchangeably and still be understood. Still, here is the main difference:

Fussy is used a lot for babies. A fussy baby is one that cries a lot for no apparent reason. Fussy used for an older person means they are acting like a baby, or being upset at something that isn't a big deal. If fussy is used for an object, it means it doesn't work if everything isn't exactly right. A fussy copy machine might need a specific kind of paper or it jams up.

Picky is used for someone with very strong opinions. I think the most common way to use it is to say someone is a picky eater (they only eat certain foods). Someone might be picky about the movies they watch or the music they listen to. I don't think we usually use picky for objects.

This is a really good question! Keep up the good work learning 😄
Q: What is the difference between picky and demanding ?
A: To be picky is to be excessively selective or, in other words, fussy. Someone who is very particular about the kinds of foods they eat can be called a picky/fussy eater.
Demanding, if referring to a person, means that they're very hard to please or satisfy. Your boss, for example, can be demanding. If referring to a thing, like a task or a job, it means that it's very difficult, challenging or stressful.
Q: What is the difference between picky and choosy ?
A: 똑같아요. 그렇지만 "picky" 더 써요.
