How to Be Everything. Emilie Wapnick. They are endlessly inquisitive. That is exactly the reason why they don't want to specialize in any of the things they love because that means giving up all the rest. Some even think that being an expert would be limiting and annoying. Identifying yourself so means changing the way you see yourself in the world. It starts with the basic understanding that you should stop trying to fit into the accepted norm at once and begin learning about who you are.
To help you build the productive future you were designed for, you need a set of instructions. Unfortunately or not, there is no academic path to train you in the best use of your irrepressible curiosity or to direct your quick mind into a multidirectional specialty. Likewise, there are no career tracks or job titles for the multitalented. A parent needs to supply all the children. No one in his right mind would ever accuse a bee of lacking focus or losing interest too quickly.
Plain and simple, whether it stays at a flower for 2 seconds or 20 seconds, we understand it needs that amount of time to get what it came for, which is the Reward. And what about your Scanner Reward? Each Scanner is unique in this sense. So here enters the need for self-observation and self-knowledge for you to be aware of your reward. But the main reason Scanners are different from others, and the reason they get noticed for not sticking to anything is that they learn faster than almost anybody.
Scanners run through interests in record time because they love learning more than anything else. Who are not Scanners? Specialists are the first ones to come to mind apparently when it comes down to who are not scanners.
Some clear examples of them are professional musicians, scientists, mathematicians, athletes and so on. However, they aren't. Even though Scanners and sad people might have a hard time choosing something to do, their motives are of a different nature. Scanners do not select out of the fear of missing out. Differently, depressed people do not choose because they do not feel the desire to do anything.
Likewise, Scanners are mistaken for people with Attention Disorder Disease. Being the author both a Scanner and diagnosed with ADD, she tells out of her personal experience that they are not the same. Although both can feel stuck, their reasons for this are different too. Having an ADD attack produces a mind fog that prevents people from remembering what they're doing. Therefore, do not mistake scanners for something they are not.
Types of Scanner Scanners are not all equal. They are split into two groups, namely Cyclical and Sequential. The former is defined by never repeating a subject, that is, Sequential Scanners are always moving on and on to the next field. Conversely, the latter is known by getting back to the major areas of interest previously explored. Cyclical Scanners tend to explore in cycles, what so the name.
Specifically, inside each of these two big groups, there is a dozen of subdivisions that you can relate to reading the full book. Until the technology race with the Soviet Union after World War II changed our views, the kind of people now labeled as Scanners was admired. However, by the mids, a dramatic change had occurred. When Russia launched Sputnik, the first-ever satellite to be launched into space, the United States went into shock.
Immediately US resources were devoted to catching up to and passing Russian technology, and everything else became secondary. University faculties turned into specialized training centers; science and technology—the realm of specialists—reigned supreme. Departments of literature, the humanities, even history were seen as irrelevant luxuries. And with that decline in respect came a radical change in the stature of Scanners.
All that context has imposed a psychological pressure on Scanners, not to mention the problems they already have by their very nature. Let's comment about them and offer some approaches to tackle them down. With the exception of learning project management techniques, the only thing Scanners need is to reject the conventional wisdom that says they are doing something wrong and claim their true identity.
