Shar I was planning writing this paragraph until I saw you already had!
"I really feel a bit like Jack of all trades master of none right now - as long as it doesn't involve math I can pretty much do anything I put my mind to within reason (most stuff comes easy scenario) but nothing ever holds my attention for long so I never get really good at it!"
It IS what I have always said about my self, I am exactly the same, people see me as "intelligent", but yet I usually feel I never "achieve" because I don't stick at it. I get so enthuastic about whatever I'm doing, I think to myself, this could be "it", but then I get bored, I tend to over analyze, & ask too many questions!
I have come to the conclusion ( & I liked the comment from Tiz Me) about being the classic gifted child from our generation. That perhaps we didn't get that direction/extension & validation about WHO we were (& largely giftedness wasn't recognised then) we were made to "fit" in we just don't necessarily come from the same mould of people that can thrive in their chosen field & be happy with that for the rest of their lives, I still wonder "how can they do that".
I know what you mean about wanting to find your passion, but mabey being a jack of all trades, & being adept & competent at being versitile IS a skill that few people have, alot of my friends wish they could be more like me in that regard.
I have 2 gifted boys, one with a big passion, the other is just good at anything if "he" decideds he wants to do it.
We are all different & you are so not alone.
