Discussion on: Do you consider yourself to be a generalist? Why or why not?

I am not a generalist in the sense that I am acutely familiar with every single thing about the technologies I use, but I am definitely a generalist in the sense that I work to identify the domain-transferable knowledge in all the things that I do. In addition to this, I definitely try to build generalised models of the things that I work with, i.e. what it means to be an actor in a system that I write, and what parts of that model I can use for something else (or what constituents). does that make sense?
