“Specialization is for insects”

I saw the following section on my friend Roger’s LinkedIn page the other day:

Specialties

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

-Robert A. Heinlein

Thank goodness I am a generalist. Comes with the (startup) territory.  However, I can only do only 13 of these things (including pitching manure).  Do I still qualify as a non-insect?
