Quiz: Are You a Renaissance Man or Woman?

Are you a woman or man of many interests?

Are you the type of person who doesn’t know what you want to be when you grow up… even if (especially if) you’re already grown up? Count me into this group! I still want to do it all, even if it would take a million lifetimes. While society frowns on us wanderers and free spirits, I think there is a lot to be said for being a generalist. While I admire people who can dig deep and specialize in one field, that is so not me. I’m interested in a little of everything, which I suppose is why I write quizzes. Being a writer allows me to indulge my many interests.

Anyway, instead of seeing myself as a flake, I prefer to see myself as a renaissance woman. A woman of many talents and abilities 😉 Of course this respinning is extremely self-serving, but I hope there is at least a little truth to it. I figure if I’m only going to live one life, I might as do as many things as possible. As a renaissance woman, I’m interested in writing, art (especially drawing and painting), nature, science (especially math and neuroscience), and animals. And while I don’t have time to become an expert in all of it, I like being a dabbler.

What about you? Do you feel me on this one? Are You a Renaissance Man or Woman? I have a feeling that a lot of Blogthings quiz takers are renaissance men and women, and I’d like to put my theory to the test. If you are a renaissance man or woman, let me know about it! What interests you and moves you?

So take the quiz, and let me know below what you get. Do you agree? Are you interested in many different subjects? Comment below, and let me know what you think!

What do you think?

    Totally Renissance—which makes it hard sometimes. So much energy and so many aspects to focus on—I could be really great it if I could just harness that energy and see one project through to completion!!

    I got “Totally Renaissance” which is totally true 😉 I love being a Renaissance Woman, although I will admit that lack of focus / depth is a major downside.
