What does world needs, more Woods or more Federer?
Debate of generalist vs specialist is very old. In some areas, generalist prevails and in some specialist thrives.
Specialist thrives in areas where:-
Eg of such areas are surgeon, chess player, golf etc
Generalist survives in areas :-
In such area learning by repetition or deliberate practice is not fruitful as no feedback is possible and situations are continuously changing
Eg, Finance, Politics, International Relations, Economy etc
Specialist usually suffer from "cognitive entrenchment", however generalist have a range where they flexibly applies knowledge/training from one area to other pursuits.
Generalist are generally open to new ideas and breadth of experience.
Generalist knew when to quit an unsuccessful endeavor without feeling guilty about it and experiment with something knew.
Biologically we do stay same , so our life and work preference changes overtime. Our personality changes with time & experiences.
Hence, like Michelangelo we should not be afraid to try new things, as it is only way we can learn who we are and survive in this ever changing world.
