6 Tips to Learn More Effectively as a Multipotentialite

Whenever I meet somebody studying an obscure academic niche, I ask so many questions that it usually takes the poor researcher a while to realise I’m not being sarcastic and I genuinely want to know about (for example) 18th century plumbing in the Netherlands.
