  12. 12. Jack of all trades and master of none "Jack of all trades, master of none" is a figure of speech used in reference to a person who has dabbled in many skills, rather than gaining expertise by focusing on one. The shortened version "a jack of all trades" is often a compliment for a person who is good at fixing things, and has a very good broad knowledge. A "Jack of all trades" may be a master of integration, as such an individual who knows enough from many learned trades and skills to be able to bring the individual's disciplines together in a practical manner. This person is a generalist rather than a specialist. There is also a longer version "Jack of all trades, master of none, but better than a master of one" which refers to a person who is not the best at all skills, but is better than someone who is only a master of one.
