In today's world of specialization, being a polymath goes against the grain. Refusing to settle into your own little niche flies in the face of conventional wisdom. Others will shake their heads.
"If only you would pick one subject, you'd make much better progress."
"You're wasting your energy by not focusing your efforts."
"Just grow up and make a decision already."
That's what going rogue is all about. It's about being unconventional, contradicting mainstream viewpoints, staying true to yourself in the face of the majority opposition.
Life is too short to specialize. To the rogue polymath, going along with the normal course of a compartmentalized life is not an option. The fields of learning are too many and too fertile to resist. Settling for a single area of work would be selling yourself short. A polymath lives this way because deep down, he knows there it's the only way for him.
But it can also be an advantage. In situations where there is no right answer, no existing map, or a need to innovate - the polymath may very well have the upper hand.
