Meaning someone with multiple potentials. Multi- talented. Interested in many things. Good at many things. May not be a specialist in one thing but multiple. Passionate about one thing to the exclusion of others for a while and then, bored, moves on to the next thing.
This is not a bad thing. Listening to Emilie Wapnick’s 2015 talk on why some of us don’t have one true calling, I realised she was describing me perfectly. To a TEE. We are not anomalies to be prodded and nagged into focusing all our attention on ONE thing and sticking with it.
My background and interests are as varied as the fishes in the sea. In my career, I’ve been a Typist, Sales person, Store manager, Analyst, IT trainer, and Middle school teacher. Some of my interests have included: Running, Quilting, Painting/Art, Jewellery making, and Writing. When i’m interested in something, I pursue it. Then when I’m done, it’s over and I move on to the next thing. Writing is about the only constant thing since childhood. Although learning about something new excites me, I’ve never felt truly passionate about something enough to the exclusion of other things.
Now that would be boring and who wants a boring life?
