One Moment that Changed My Life

When I was ten, I made a decision that would alter the course of my life. It wasn’t a big decision. It wasn’t anything obviously life-changing like “I will be an astronaut,” or “I will study medicine.” There’s debate about whether everybody sees their life as a grand narrative, but I think that people who think of life as […]

You Know You’re a Multipotentialite When… (Part 2)

A couple of years ago, I started a discussion in the Puttytribe, asking the puttypeep to help me come up with a list of classic multipod behaviors and situations. What followed was a hilarious conversation that in turn led to a Puttylike blog post called You Know You’re a Multipotentialite when… Well, that Puttytribe discussion is still going; it’s one […]

So I’m A Multipotentialite… What Now?!

Congratulations! You’re a multipotentialite! At least, I expect you are, because you’re reading this article. Maybe you’re not sure.

SCENE: OUTDOORS A shadowy figure is unloading barrels from a truck. We see the words, “WARNING: WEIRD CHEMICALS” emblazoned on each barrel as it is placed into a deep hole. Finally, the shadowy figure fills the hole and drives away. The camera pans underground to reveal a leak in one barrel of WEIRD CHEMICALS. We follow the […]

Are Multipotentialites a Particular Myers-Briggs/Astrological/Enneagram/etc. Type?

Full disclosure: I probably have a fever right now. It’s a beautiful summer day, here in Portland, Oregon, but I’ve come down with a cold. So Grendel and I are cozied up on the bed, and I’ve decided to write a blog post. I’m not sure that’s the best idea, but I’m in the mood. […]

How to Stay in Shape (or Maintain Any Healthy Habit) when You’re a Busy Multipotentialite

Our focus here at Puttylike is on how multipotentiality affects our interests, careers, and confidence. But being this way can affect every area of our lives. In the Puttytribe we’ve had discussions about everything from multipotentiality and food to multipotentiality and relationships. If you struggle to stick to one way of doing things, how do […]

Why You’re So Confused About What You Want

Today’s post is inspired by a concern I hear commonly from multipotentialites: There’s lots of advice out there on how to achieve your dreams. But I don’t know what my dream even is! How on earth do I figure out what I want?! Of course, this is a problem for all humans, but multipods suffer an […]

The Evolution of an Overarching Theme

Many of us feel relieved when we first come across the term “multipotentialite.” We’re so excited to find out we’re not alone and that there’s nothing wrong with us. At this point, many of us keep digging, perhaps reading through several years’ worth of Puttylike articles. Eventually we come across the concept of an overarching theme. […]
