The OP does make a perfectly valid premise though. It's just looking at the wrong people for it's examples. It's these Diagnoctors who are all batshit crazies.

Yeah, batshit all the way to the bank.
Yeah, that says nothing for their judgement either.

You shouldn't judge them for having an over-active diagnosis gland.

It's been shown that superdiagnoctors excrete at least like twice the amount of prescriptions than the average.

Well, in that case, I've got all sorts of conditions for him. And a rather eclectic shopping list of drugs I'll be needing. For my chronic narcolepsy, my ADHD, my oppositional defiance disorder, and my terrible glaucoma.
(That'll do for starters)

No Dr. I didn't mean any of that shit earlier, I was just funning wit . . . . . . ZZZzzzzzzzzz *snores*

Supertasters actually do have something like twice the normal density of taste buds, which can apparently make some foods seem overwhelmingly salty or bitter. I highly doubt that most picky eaters are supertasters, though.

I suspect most picky eaters are passive-aggressive little nancies who feel forced to attend some kind of dinner party or corporate function where food is being served, and pick the most pathetic thing they still have any control over in order to demoralize those around them.

Or they do it because they're on Come Dine With Me and really want to win £1000, and will put down other people's food to do it (oh, I don't like cheese, seafood, red meats or vegetables that aren't bought from a farmer's market.  What should I do today?  I know, I'll enter a food and hospitality competition where I'll be asked to judge the meals of complete strangers!)

All joking or rancour aside, this is it. They were at some point, so disempowered, the only thing they had any control over, is what they put into their bodies. And rather than let that little piece of power go, they get stuck, reinforcing a cycle where it's all they have. And that must be pretty fucking shit.
It's not to demoralise those around them though. (Although that is a consequence) It's to hang on to the shit life which is all they feel they have.

eta; I still stand by the "Halfway to Somalia" cure though. Got to be cruel to be kind.
