Do you think it’s better to have a broad knowledge base or a deep knowledge base?
It depends. For example, I would like my doctor to have a deep knowledge base about the human body, diseases, medicines, etc. I don’t care if he knows anything about Star Trek or Shakespeare. My dad was pleased when he found a GP who also enjoyed James Joyce’s writing, but I don’t want to talk about literature when I’m getting a physical. This Joyce doc did not help me one bit with my migraines when I visited. 🙁
On the other hand, it’s more fun to have friends who know a little about a lot than an egghead who can and will talk for twelve hours about nuclear physics, Elvis Presley, or constitutional law (like who cares?). I myself am in this group ~ a lifetime member of the section of people who know extremely little about a vast array of topics.
