Question about google contacts syncing

view story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – Hi guys I've tried doing a search and couldn't find anything so apologies in advance for my incompetence. I'm new to the Android community and recently got my S3. I'm feeling very frustrated with the contacts syncing because the phone is syncing all of my contacts from gmail including the "other contacts" folder. However doing a basic search in google says that once you setup your android phone the contacts that sync are those in the "my contacts" folder. Is there any solution to this? There doesn't seem to be any place where I can restrict which contact folder from gma (HowTos)
