Jack of all trades, master of none. I was kinda sad that I could never find one thing that I am, or at least considered myself to be, good at. I always thought that to be someone, you have to be good at one thing. Then I finally accepted the fact that I’m just not good at just one thing, and that there’s nothing wrong with knowing a lot.

A multipotentialite is a person who has many different interests and creative pursuits in life.

Multipotentialites have no “one true calling” the way specialists do. Being a multipotentialite is our destiny. We have many paths and we pursue all of them, either sequentially or simultaneously (or both).

Multipotentialites thrive on learning, exploring, and mastering new skills. We are excellent at bringing disparate ideas together in creative ways. This makes us incredible innovators and problem solvers.
