You said this... "That is your opinion. But I prefer polymaths. I relate more with Jobs. And Musk. We spread ourselves thin." That looks exactly like you're labeling Musk and Jobs as polymaths. What he said makes sense and jibes with what I found. Note, this is NOT to insult you or anyone else who likes to study a lot of different things. If you take it that way, I apologize. It's certainly true that people who study different things seem to have happier lives overall and still can contribute a good amount. I would actually recommend that someone be a "wide study" person if they want to have a balanced and good life. Unfortunately, the Nobel Prize is very political, so much so that I lost respect for it some time ago. On top of that, Gandhi never received one...and neither did Jonas Salk.
