Specialist vs. Generalist - The Battle of the Classes
Nurse Nancy does one thing, and she does it well--she's a healer. MacGyver, on the other hand...well, what exactly does he do? I'm not entirely sure, but I'm pretty sure that, in a clinch, I'd want the guy with the paperclip, rubber band, aerosol can and duct tape in my corner. In this week's editorial about specialist classes versus generalists, I go up against Medeor in an epic battle of words. I'm the generalist, which makes me MacGyver. Where that leaves Medeor the specialist I'm not so sure. Read the article and decide for yourself who you'd rather have in your corner.
When you build something do you look for the “all-in-one” tool or the tool that will complete the task at hand? If you are in a pinch you will grab that Leatherman All-In-One Multi-Tool™ and make do, but if you had your druthers, you’d have real pliers or a hammer, right?
Okay, funny guy...it’s on. You think my Swiss Army Knife of a Druid isn’t group-worthy? You doubt that I’m a master of my abundant and useful skills? Let me ask you this: in a tight situation, who would you rather have at your side, Nurse Nancy with her Band-aids and mercurochrome; or MacGyver with a paper clip, rubber band, aerosol can and some duct tape?
