An outpost for curious divergent thinkers who appreciate diversity, broad thinking, widely inspired ideas, and addressing issues globally.

FOUNDER'S NOTE

By their very nature generalists tend not to congregate. Our interests are so many and so varied that it's almost counter-intuitive to try to gather us around a common theme. But it is indeed possible.

This community's goal is simply to define what it is to be a creative generalist and build a directory of sorts for those who specialize in everything.

Generalists, you're not alone. And you really should meet each other. Welcome.

Narrative Essay

My literacy skills have assisted me to interact with individuals from different walks of life, particularly people using English as their first language. In various settings other than the school one, one has to be fluent and proficient and technically competent in English. My competence in reading and writing has helped me learn in an environment other than the classroom. A year ago I came across a writing contest while browsing on Facebook. On further inquiries, I ascertained that the writing…See More

Labeling doesn’t work for #Generalists

 

Generalists love to learn, all the time. Sometimes a topic, a subject might catch their curious eye and their attention is drawn to it for a month, a quarter, a year. After a while the attraction becomes much less and they start to look for new topics. Adaptation has a powerful impact on Generalists.

In the background they still keep on fuelling their curiosity and love for learning, so they never focus on just one topic only.

 

A Generalist has a growth…
