- Do you have a low tolerance for boredom and get tired of a task after some time?
- Feel the urge to change your stream or course after maybe a couple of years?
- Does your energy level soar high when starting a project, but somewhere near the middle of it, you feel like you have had enough?
These are some of the questions, the answers of which, if yes, might be a shred of robust evidence that you have bits of multipotentiality in you.
Is being a multipotentialite student good for a career?
There are two ways to think about it. While it is considered to be a gift from the above, on the other hand, people possessing this trait aren’t utterly satisfied with themselves. Looking at the brighter side, those people can quickly pick up new skills owing to their interests.
