Being a hacker is not about your skillset. It's about your mindset. It's about curiosity. Not what can technology do for me. But what I can make the technology do for me.
"You are born a Hacker. If you decide to use the innate ability or not is up to you. Tesla was a Hacker. Da Vinci was a Hacker. Anyone who pursues their passion and tries to make something or make something new out of something already created is hacking." Jayson E. Street
Hacking, is not an IT skill. You can hack people with social engineering or psychology. You can hack locks with locksmith tools/lockpicks. You can hack cars, drones, phones, TV's, planes. You can hack elevators, industrial machines or processes. You can hack anything, because it's all about finding the ways around the system, making it do what you want it to do, not what it's creators want to.
