I was almost about to cry myself, why you may ask. first let’s watch this video.
I knew I lowkey have some form of ADHD, but now, I’ve discovered that I’m a multipotentialite. I was stuck for so long because i wasn’t entirely sure who I am and why i’m a bit fuzzy. I felt understood.
WTF is a Multipotentialite
Multipotentiality is an educational and psychological concept that refers to a person’s capacity and inclination to flourish in two or more distinct professions, especially if they have a great intellectual or creative curiosity.
It may also apply to someone who is interested in a variety of disciplines or topics rather than excelling in just one.
Here are 7 traits that may resonate with you.
- You have an insatiable curiosity for creativity and learning
- You get bored easily as you’re a generalist and not a specialist
- You are passionate about multiple topics and interests
- You’re multi-talented and highly creative
- You are a non conformist
- You’re an unconventional thinker
- You’re a big picture thinker who solves problems and thinks strategically
The bottom line is that we’re generalists, not specialists.
We find it difficult to specialise since we have so many hobbies and interests that we become tired with one subject rapidly.
There’s a lot of embarrassment in it. Specialization has come under a lot of criticism in today’s society. We are pigeonholed and categorised by society.
As a result, multipotentialites frequently believe that they are erratic or that something is off with them. Many multipotentialites are hampered by the dilemma of choice.
Because there are so many passions and interests to choose from, people become stuck by analytical paralysis.
Alternatively, they may bounce from one niche down attempt to the next, only to feel naive and ashamed when they realise their fairy tale romance was simply another holiday romance.
If we do nothing about it, we’ll be in the same position next year and the year after that.
