You know if you are born a Renaissance Woman, or have met a Renaissance Woman, because:

You/She can mix the knowledge of what is considered disparate spheres into a new whole,

by using her most unique method of analysis based on

her very vast, deep, curiosity and experiences...

which led to a very vast & deep knowledge,

that she is so anxious to apply to everyday life, &
to inquire, and share with everyone she meets.
Real Question from top Venture Capital Fund CEO (note, he's in his 70's, ex - RIT, Xerox Exec.) during 7th , and final, interview with firm in 2000):

"How do you reconcile your math skills with such a personality?" That is, how can you have disparate skills - fun & math?- how do you reconcile being a "Renaissance Woman"? After recovering from the shock of such a question (I haven't even mentioned my art studies, piano lessons, theater, music exposure/loves), I responded - "I don't think that having math skills and a personality are mutually exclusive. How can you operate in business without being able to communicate with other people?". That's the lesson - I was able to communicate with all 7 interviewers because I had lived in , knew someone from, knew something about, and was interested in, a subject of interest to the interviewer. The lack of a "Renaissance" mind-set defines the "State of the Union" today - no one is communicating because people are closing their spheres instead of opening them and comprehending the multitude of their connections. That's how a nerd hippie got hired by a Mormon venture capital fund.
