Having google index only pages on my site and not posts, good for SEO?

I posted a "similar" question to google search results for posts on my page.

This one is a little different.

I have a site with a bunch of products on it, about 1600 to 1700 or so. Eahc product is a different wordpress post.

I don't really want google to index all my posts, I would be happy for it just to index my home page and other pages I have on my site. About 4 other pages.

If i submit my site maps for just the pages, and home page, will the negatively affect my seo ranking? The reason I ask is because my "posts" which are lists of products have images, price, and a link to the product. I don't need to have google index all my posts as there isn't enough content to worry about that on them (Like description, uses, etc. etc..).

As from prior advice on here, it would impact me negatively more by having google index all my posts since all my posts are just individual products on my site.

Would I be ok just having google index my home page and pages rather than all my posts to?

example>

site.com

site.com/about/

site.com/categories/

site.com/submit/

site.com/contact

and not all my "posts" (products)

Sorry new to SEO.
