I don't know about me... to be totally honest with you I am probably not!

If this is new to you, you can learn more about it from Wikipedia and Puttylike.

Now that you know the definitions, you probably also know that it's similar to a polymath or renaissance man/woman and several other synonyms that you've heard of in the past and linked with many geniuses like Leonardo Da Vinci or Benjamin Franklin or even the Last Man Who Knew Everything.

Seems like an interesting thing to explore and learn more about and also a great way to live. Because as Robert A. Heinlein said, specialization is for insects and a human can and should do a lot of different things.

Then again, I also feel that calling oneself a multipotentialite or anything else for that matter is some kind of a limitation a narrowing down or self-stereotyping.

As for me, and I think it for almost everyone else too. Yes, I do believe that I (and everybody else) have/has potential to be interested in, learn about and do interesting things in multiple areas of life. And most of us already are, we just don't call it by a fancy name

Still curious if you are a multipotentialite? Find out.
