12 of 23 Signs You’re Secretly an Introvert

12. You’d rather be an expert at one thing than try to do everything.

“Jack of all trades, master of none.”  That would be me.  So, I can’t say I fit into this exactly.

If you’re anything like me, you jump around from one thing to another.  While “expert” is a pretty strong term, I become quite proficient at something and once I’ve kind of gotten all I can out of it, I tend to abandon it and move onto something else.

I’m not sure if I get bored or I just don’t feel I can or want to go any farther with what I’ve learned/mastered/excelled in.

If we get a new type of pet, I read up on it to make sure I do the best I can by that little creature.  I’m a professional photographer, but after it was an actual job for a while, it lost its magic.  I’ve never had a career, per se, because different things interest me at different times.  I think what works for me in my current job is things can grow and change – it doesn’t and shouldn’t be the same forever.

I am often drawn to a simple, repetitive type of work – but I know after a short while I would be clawing my way out.

So, I guess I’m just a wanderer – doing the best I can do at the time and moving onto something new that will challenge me again.
