what's the difference between 想 and 要? in terms of 'to want'

I'd say 要 is more direct and affirmative, like "I've made up my mind and this is what I want." Where 想 is more like casual, "would like". 想 can also mean to think about something, or to miss someone. Hope that helps give an idea of the feeling.
