What they already know is never enough for people with the Gate 16 of Skills. They experiment with different skills, abilities and eventually achieve mastery in them.

People with the Gate 16 hone their creativity or technical ability through constant repetition and skill improvement. Inside them lives the spirit of the experimenter, which pushes them to repeat and repeat. This is how they achieve mastery in the business they undertake. It is important for them to fully identify with their work, to deeply understand it. Such a dancer becomes a dance himself one day. He goes beyond what technology can give and becomes it himself. The experiment leads them to express the depth of their talent. Without 48 gates in the map, people with 16s may not know what to experiment with, what is worthy of their attention. For all their skills, they seek a deep understanding of the process that the 48th gate carries. In the 48 gates of “The Depths”, people with 16 get the necessary foundation on which they build their skills, which should bring concrete benefits to others, and will not remain another skill in the collection.
