It depends on what capacity a person or a living being have. As we find not
all living beings are capable and not all human beings are equal, some have
fast hands, some are 100 mts champions, some are marathon runners.

But I have never seen or made the choice of multiple professions or hobbists.

We are not leading to biology, we are moving on to advances made in
computing, like speech to text can dictate a program, an intelligent IDE
should convert a program from synonym's in programming and complete
the program which can be tested and corrected at the IDE level. Would take
Dev Ops to another level.
