ya, if you want to limit yourself in poker sure. I think it's fine to play on the tighter side if that's what your personality is, but avoiding extremes in poker is really a must. What i mean by that is playing tight is fine, but playing too tight is not. Conversely playing loose is also fine, but playing way too loose is also really bad. Just like most things striking a balance between the two is pretty important.
Also, i believe if you are a certain type of personality you will find the games which best suit you anyways. Like me, i'm pretty impatient and i don't like to do the same things over and over, so i'm more suited to MTT or fast paced SNG and i generally play a slightly looser style than average. Others who are tighter type personalities would be more suited to 9 man cash games or something similar.
The only other thing left to add is that you really don't want to be focusing on your "style" too much. Instead you want to be focusing on exploiting your opponents, and that will dictate to you what style or what game plan is best for that opponent or that table. Like really basic example, is that a relatively tight table you don't really want to be playing tight also, as there is way more money to be made by opening more pots than you normally would. Again, avoiding extremes we don't wanna be just raising every pot, but we do want to extend the range of hands we raise with.
Hope this helps.
