UX Generalist vs UX Specialist gotta be one of the commonly discussed topics in the UX community.
Personally, I like the idea of being a Generalist rather than a specialist. It must have been quite obvious if you have already visited my Resume page, where I have referred me being a generalist using an idea of Key shaped people vs T-Shaped People. It’s not just T shaped or Key shaped people, its always going to be this vs that, T shaped vs I shaped people, E shaped vs T shaped People, I won’t be surprised if someone comes up with new alphabets of their choice to compare and demonstrate this cross-competency argument some day (Side note: Stop discrimination against alphabets you monsters – every alphabet were created equal 😉 ), but the overall idea here is: to be extremely good at one discipline or to be good in one field alongside some knowledge on other closley related subject matters.
