Extremely at sth. Being an expert is much better than being well-rounded...hated to know everything a little but never professional at any of them(the status I'm now).
I guess I would like to be more well-rounded? I feel life will be more interesting for me this way. But arguably for people that are single-headed, I guess doing other things will not make them as happy as the things they are extremely good at.
I would like to be extremely good at something but also don't have an obvious shortfall.
That's would be lovely to have
For me, I would like to be extremely good at something, rather than more well-rounded, as most people are considered more well-rounded, which only leads to a peaceful and stable life, rather than achieving significant results and making progress for the world, make a contribution. I mean, it really depends on everyone's life goals.
that's right. A lot of top-tier scientists are like this. But figures like Richard Feynman are more well-rounded tho, but at the same time sharp in his field
I'd rather be more well-rounded. Because this way I don't become limited and I can improve myself.
Wait till you hear that I get rejected from all colleges I apply to. /hj
That's a joke, but the thing is: as high-schoolers, especially regarding US colleges, they want people who are decent all around and excellenent in one field, desirably related to their field of application. People who are just arbitrarily good at mostly everything but excels at nothing(like me for example) adds nothing to the student body because, well, putting such an individual in any arbitrarily large student group and you'd find out that their combined strengths literally eclipses your entirety, even though such an ecliptic action is not caused by any one given individual. So yes, someone only "well-rounded" would be nothing more than backup.
But that's just based on societal expectations. In reality, you would be perfectly fine rendering yourself as backup and be cheerful within: it's your choice after all.
Anyways, I have essentially fallen into the trap of false dichotomy initially when seeing this title. Surely, being good at something also aids in learning about how learning works --- which makes you more well-rounded as a result. So in the end, the "choices" given can not only be treated as two polar opposites as we assume they are, but as well sequentially: as learning to be one arguably helps in learning to be the other. As to my opinion? Because I am already a relatively well rounded person at the time of writing this post, I would aim for excellence at a specific field for the sole reason of faith that I won't lose everything I have whilst gaining new information. Either way, thanks you for reading, or something, idk just don't delete it---~~~
It is indeed a good toefl practice tho. I wish I could have done more writing like this but Tofle is easy tho, easy 30 lol. But, still suck at IB HL english.
I have just received discouraging comments from my English teacher: well not for writing in general, but for writing like this. Apparently for Toefl scores of 110+, writing like this makes everything confusing which may lower one's score so....
Either way, this place is nevertheless still good toefl practice, not because such formats are compatible, but because this is essentially good recovering therapeutics: They are trying to frame flexible forum into something algorithmic, systematic and predictable, and talking with actual English users rather than blank made-up characters on a screen helps.
And yes, you are one of the least AI-like peeps out there, consider this a compliment.
Thanks for your compliment. I do think it's a good writing practice, regardless of the format. Language is always adaptable to different formats tho
