Hashem Elassad in Jordan talking to Perry about being a hybrid researcher.

Is spending 10.000 hours to become a specialist the only way? And do specialists surpass generalists in profit and happiness? Hashem appreciates both sides of the generalist-specialist spectrum. He is a specialist in his “how” which is research. However, he is more of a generalist when it comes to the “what” of research. That can be quite a diverse range including finding & researching emails, people, ideas, articles, opportunities, and data. The fields he’s interested in are numerous including education, psychology, career development, and languages. He sees himself as a hybrid, between a generalist and a specialist.Hashem ElAssad is a University of Toronto psychology graduate with Honors. Using his research and analytical skills.
