Everyone has been asked, what do you want to be when you grow up? When you’re young you don’t have a problem answering the question because you say anything that comes to your mind. Once you’re older you begin to feel more and more pressure to have an answer to the question. You begin to have anxiety because you’re still trying to figure out your dream career is at 25 years old.
If you’re still trying to decide what you want to be, you’re probably a multipotentialite. What is a multipotentialite? It describes someone with many interest and creativity who doesn’t know how to combine their interests. Being a multipotentialite comes with advantages like an idea synthesis, combining two or more fields together to creating something new at the intersection; Rapid learning, not being afraid to take on new challenges; and adaptability, the ability to change into whatever you need to be in any given situation.
