    My job requires me to be a jack of all trades.  I can’t say I have really mastered anything.

    @cbee: I think it is a good thing.  Makes you good at multi-tasking for sure, I would think, career wise, that would be a good thing.  There are so few careers that only need you to be AWESOME at ONE thing.

    I like to be a master of one thing, but that’s mostly because I am one of those people who is just not good at anything, lol.  So, when I come accross something I display any aptitude for, I like to throw myself into being as good as I can be at it.

    To illustrate how terrible I am at almost everything I try, the above has happened with exactly 4 things in my 25 years of existence 🙁  But I’ve made my peace with it, lol

    I’m a JOAT, but only because I’m too mediocre to master anything!

    Jill of all trades. I don’t have the dedication to master anything and there are just so many interesting things. I’ll start something and then be like “Oh.. wow! I’ve always wanted to learn how to _______.”


    So many many things I have tried and never mastered. *eyes her knitting*

    Jack of many trades! I love learning how/about new things. But I don’t consider myself of “all trades” because I rather be good at the many trades than mediocre at all of the trades…if that mankes any sense.
