Msconfig - Does Selective Startup Cause Slower Boot

System Configuration Set To Selective Startup
I went to check my msconfig today and I noticed my "Startup Selection" was set to "Selective Startup". I certainly do not recall doing this and have been having no problems with my computer so I was wondering if it's meant to be like this? Should I leave it alone or change it back to normal...
