Just remember the adage:

A specialist will tend to underestimate a generalist's ability to specialize, when they choose to focus on one thing; A generalist will tend to underestimate how deep any given specialty actually extends.

I don't think that's really an adage. It's also flawed. A broader experience gives you a much better idea of how much you don't know.

An an adage specialist, I can tell you it is an adage, and you have no idea how deep the adage world goes.
