A Multipotentialite is a person with many interests who is not fulfilled by pursuing one single, specialised career
A multipotentialite is someone with many interests, talents and creative pursuits, who doesn’t subscribe to the idea that one career path is enough. They don’t believe that choosing to specialise in one subject can be the only option to feel fulfilled both professionally and personally, and they think that it is possible to successfully pursue different avenues. A multipotentialite is attracted by things that are completely unrelated to one another, and knows how to easily adapt to different tasks. The different ways that we see this characteristic are varied; to get an idea, it’s something like a cook experimenting with different recipes. They might choose to put several saucepans on the hob at the same time, and cook all of them with the same heat, or they might decide to prioritise one dish and simmer the others, without rushing. We could also picture a chef standing over a bonfire with one giant cauldron.
However they may decide to express this tendency in their personal lives, in their careers, multipotentialites do not operate in a straight line; the lines that they follow tend to be somewhat transversal, and they will make the most of their skills by applying them to various disciplines, and in novel ways.
