Jack of all trades, master of none?

Do you identify with that phrase and why?

I do. I sometimes feel like I'm spread thinly over all my interests, but that I'm not as proficient in any of them as I think I should be. Is it an INTJ thing or just a Turquoise thing?

I know there is a thread where INTJ's discussed their obsessions and many mentioned being focussed on something for months and then switching to something else. This seems to be a type characteristic so I thought it would be interesting to know your experiences regarding my question.

I do spread myself thin, in some ways.
I guess it depends on how you define "master." If it is relation to the subject material, there is always more to know when it comes to anything interesting, so it is hard to "master," particularly if your reference point is perfection. And I suspect INTJs are more aware of their deficiencies in this area than some other types - though not all of us care to admit it publicly. If it is in relation to other people and their level of knowledge, well that's easy if you're keen, but what INTJ defines their knowledgebase in relation to other people?
