Any multipotentialites in the group?

Hi everyone!I've been on sleeping on this for a while but wanted to put a feeler out to see if there are any multipotentialites in the community?I'm exploring some content at that moment and hoping to find a way to help those early on in their career to 'own it'. Would love to talk to any individuals who identify as a multipotentialite, have been able to navigate this effectively within their career or find any general challenges with this.As a rough definition:"Multipotentiality is an educational and psychological term referring to the ability and preference of a person, particularly one of strong intellectual or artistic curiosity, to excel in two or more different fields. It can also refer to an individual whose interests span multiple fields or areas, rather than being strong in just one." Neatly taken from Wikipedia of course. I've never coordinated group/community calls but if this seems like a topic more people would like to get into - I'd be happy to set that up 😊
I guess I fall under this label? I have a wide breadth of interests/knowledge and can go deep on many of them (I’m in biotech, both business and technical, with interests in policy and art as well). Have been looking for roles than span at least some of the things I’m interested in, and have been lucky enough to find some. Ive never heard this term before but I like it. Would be curious to hear from other people that have navigated finding roles that span multiple interest areas (areas of potential?) and make them feel fulfilled.

That sounds about right!I've generally found I've moved to smaller businesses (after starting in a large corp) and that works best for me, as there's more scope to support different areas of the business and find areas that I lean more towards in my interest. Operations roles tends to work across so much so I've found shifting towards that role has been super helpful for me.I've tried to keep some of my interests separate so that I don't lose the 'enjoyment' of them, such as art and creativity but they tend to dip in every now and then in the work I do.

I feel like this describes my entire personality but my actual life hasn’t fulfilled any of it as executive dysfunction from undiagnosed ADHD has kept me from exploring most of what I’m interested in for decades. I keep finding ways my brain has failed me. It really sucks.
