Is it better to be someone who is way above average in his field, but knows a lot about other fields that don't necessarily relate to his profession OR be a complete expert in the field but know little about even basic concepts in other subjects?

Yes I understand this point, because I also study economics. However my issue would be that even if you take up most of your time to focus solely on one subject, after a while the gains you will get for researching that subject for 1 hour would be minimal. (It would take a long time to become even 1% better than you are now, since you already have an immense understanding of the subject.) In that case would it be better to explore other subjects?

it depends on your goal. #1 is right, but if you're looking for an academic or specialist point of view, specialization (being way above average in a single topic) is better. If you're intending to somehow multifunction, then having superficial knowledge about several topics is better for coordinating a team of specialists

I think an expert in one single particular field is the better option.

In terms of getting a job the 2nd is better imo,I dont think most employers care about what you know outside of your job

The trade-off that you describe does not exist. It is impossible to be the best at something and a complete retard in everything else. If you want to become the best at something, you need to optimize so many things about how you work on stuff that you will automatically become really good at other things. A good athlete knows a lot about sleep, nutrition, leading his teammates other workout, marketing himself and perhaps even psychology and philosophy. A good scientist is sick in maths, but also good at writing and giving talks. Further they must know how to strategize and convince others. They must know all the other fields that can be connected to theirs, because that is basically the secret to stay on the top. Someone who is the best at a discipline like this is so efficient and has had to internalize so many concept that they could easily ace some other university degree. So that already makes them "above-average" in everything else. Generally it is advisable to try to become really good at one thing, but that includes exploring everything that is closely related. Say you want to be really good at play just one RPG. Obviously, you will become a really good shooter/aimer too, if there is bows in this game.

Yes agreed, I didn't quite mean that you have to be terrible in everything else, just hypothetically if you decided to solely on one subject, this would take up time from research in other fields, and maybe even you woudn't be keeping up with current affairs etc. I was arguing from a point that you can't eat your cake and have it too, and I was only wondering what would be a better choice.

You need specialized experts to push science and medicine forward but you also need generally intelligent and critically thinking citizens in order to keep society running. A great example of having a society fail because of lack of general education is the usa. If more people were educated, we wouldn't be this right wing trump supporting christian cultist red neck shit hole we are currently. On the other hand usa has achieved a great percentage of humanitys greatest achievements in sciences and medicine.

Good point, although I focused on personal development and opportunity cost of becoming in expert in your field. I would imagine that no matter what path you choose (from what I proposed) you will be able to make better decisions regardless, and become more valuable to the wellbeing of your community..
