My right wrist (I am right handed) has been giving me some issues after an extended jam session (about 8-10 minutes) a little over a week ago. I have small hands and short fingers so I have to really stretch to get after that G string (no jokes, please... lol). I tried the floating thumb method and resting my thumb on the E and A strings but it has proven a bit too awkward. The last thing I wanted to do was use a pick. I understand a pick is necessary for some songs. However, I never pictured myself playing with a pick all the time. I tried it out for about two or three hours tonight and I was very pleased with the results. I guess playing guitar for 30+ years probably helped a bit. I think I actually play better with a pick. And no straining on my right wrist. What a relief! I am really enjoying using a pick now. So I guess you can call me a “picker”.
