Are you a Cherry Picker?
Cherry Picking definition "The picker would be expected to only select the ripest and healthiest fruits. An observer who only sees the selected fruit may thus wrongly conclude that most, or even all, of the fruit is in such good condition. A less common type of cherry picking is to gather only fruit that is easy to harvest ignoring quality fruit higher up the tree. This can also give observers a false impression about the quality of fruit on the tree"
How about we go ahead and translate that for you folks in a more CrossFit friendly verse.
" The CrossFitter would be expected to only select the workouts they percieve to be enjoyable and some what good at. A Coach who only sees this CrossFitter in their element may thus wrongly conclude that they are competent, or even excellent, at all broad times and modal domains. A less common type of cherry picking is to only participate in workouts that are easy to complete with an above average score. This can also give Coaches/observers a false impression about the quality of this CrossFitter."
So, are you a cherry picker?
