Assess Yourself

How should you approach the question to be broad or deep – or at least more of one and less of the other? Why should you care? Well, to start with it’s helpful to know where you currently fall on the breadth-depth spectrum. Are you naturally more broad, or do you instinctively veer toward depth?

Although there is no scientifically proven way of knowing this, a rough-and-ready self-assessment can help you gauge your intrinsic orientation, mind-set, and attitude. So take a look at the following statements and answer “true” or “false” to each one, choosing the answer that applies most accurately to you.
