What do YOU know?


What do you think when you read that word?

Most people that I know of think of highly inteligent people that know a lot of everything like the people who get all the questions to categories 16th century knitting and Gravitational physics on Jeopardy right.

Some of eclectic people just have a short attention span. These people dive extremely deep into 1 subject that they need (want) to know for the period of a week or 2 and then they get bored with it. There are so many interesting things out there, why stick with 1? There is a slight problem with that. Does anyone know any jobs in which you are not very good at any 1 thing?

Seriously, I am asking you

my only suggestion would be to wrok with people. something where you have to talk to them, get to know them. not everyone's eclectic so they can tell you a lot about one particular subject. then you meet someone else, and BOOM! new subject.
Lots of jobs require versatility and reasonable levels of expertise in many areas. Public policy development, diplomacy, and being an author are all examples.
