I think that's a shame — both Haskell and Rust certainly made me think deeply about the way I write code in other languages, inspired me to experiment and question why I follow certain patterns.

I think there's no reason to become an expert in every paradigm, but I think there are certainly direct benefits to regularly practicing with languages which seem weird to you.

Many imperative/OOP languages are adopting functional concepts as well!

 

Have you tried Lisp yet? I think it provides the same advantages of Haskell without limiting you to one paradigm. Maybe that's one of the reasons as well: I already know Lisp and I use it in practice...
