In a culture where any basic achievement by a disabled person is perceived as an act of bravery, living with a chronic health condition since birth meant coming to terms with being perceived as “an inspiration.” All I really wanted was to meet other multipotentialites like me.
Help! I’m an academic who’s been invited to pursue a PhD, but my interests and talents are too wide-ranging and diffuse. I have no idea how to start narrowing down an area of focus for my doctorate.
Multipotentialites are different from specialists, and we respond to different expressions of affection and care. If you are struggling to identify your love language from the predefined list, it might be worthwhile to shift your perspective.
