Lately, I've been catching myself pick weird... instead of using my wrist, I use my pointer and thumb to move the pick... I can pick more accurately this way, but I feel it's wrong... Should I change my ways?

If it works best for you that way then use it. In the end it's up to whether it improves your playing or not. If it does, then do it.

a guy i know does that when arpeggiating chords, i tried it and it didn't work. He can pick very accuratly with it and doesn't have to watch his hand to see where he is picking because it doesn't move.

if your comfortable with it then keep it up, if not try something else.

You'll probably want to switch back to the wrist for trem-picking, but if it works out for you and there's no stress, then stick with it.

thanks guys. I find it useful when going across strings, but using my wrist for faster stuff.

I pick by pivoting my thumb, and I have for 6 years, except if I'm doing fast rhythmic stuff like triplets or what have you,,, it's much more comfortable for me though doing scalar things, and if you practice enough using your thumb instead of your wrist I don't think either will have a definite speed advantage,
