I wonder how the following words for describing someone who knows many different things compare, and when to use which word. Some are adjectives, others are nouns:
- ... (possibly others if you don't hesitate to mention)
I encountered "aficionado" and "versatile" from a personal description here
"It's getting harder and harder for me to believe that you're just a hobbyist. Aficionado would be a better term. And a damn versatile one at that!"
- When I told some American I hoped to be polymath, he said they would use "Renaissance" instead.
