There are only 2 kinds of people in the world - do you keep your foods on the dinner plate strictly isolated from each other, or do you play with them and mix them?

I compulsively mix them. Rice or other starch with veggies and bits of the meat all mixed together.

I am an isolator for the most part, especially if there are sweet and savory foods involved. I can't stand for my food to touch.

I also eat my food in the same manner, generally I focus on one part (e.g. a side), then I'll focus on another part of the meal.

My ex was an "isolator", as a matter of fact, he hated all casseroles, he wanted a peice of meat, a starrch, a veggie, but nothing touching. I told him I should just buy some of those baby dishes with separaters in the dish. Or a tray, with separate compartments. He was picky eater, in the extreme.

As for me, I could care less.

My kids though, are all picky eaters now...they are just like their Dad, except for one, who is more like me, but he is still picky too, just not as much as the others.

Woof, I have to argue this point. I am by nature an isolator, but, but, some foods are just meant to be smooshed and mixed.

Doesn't usually concern me one way or another. Some things I'll mix purposely.

I don't like mixing anything!
I wouldn't consider myself a picky eater, but I really don't like mixing foods.

used to be an isolater; it drove hubby nuts and he would mix everything together which drove me up the wall. Now I mix some things and he isolates some of his food. I guess 53 years of marriage (in 3 days) makes us change and adapt.
