Broad skills

 No, it’s not being really good with women.

I was discussing with a friend the other day, the pros and cons of broad skills, as apposed to deep, but narrow skills.

Broad skills – pros – lots of knowledge of different areas, obvious ability and/or interest in many areas. Potentially more locations would be willing to hire, as you probably have some skills in something they need.

Broad skills – cons – hard to get a high paid ‘specialized’ job in any one area.

Deep skills – pros – easy to get high paid specialized jobs.

Deep skills – cons – fewer potential places to find work, as only has skills in a very specific area.


Just something that I’m thinking about at the moment.


Also, is bordom at work inversely proportional to stress?
