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.

"My official ENFP came with an "uncharacteristic introversion". I liken that to being raised an only child with few close friends growing up. I spent (and still do) a lot of time in solitude, but I can work a room if I need to.  "

" Indeed, Omari.  One must have a strong sense of self and a solid practice of self-care as an intuitive, feeling, and/or highly sensitive person in NYC.  "

"INFP.  My Strong's (Holland?) is AS.  Embracing this feels very awkward within New York culture."
