It's a discussion. Your edit was extremely minor and removed one of several hints to the fact that the question can not be answered, only discussed. More relevant is the fact that those hints were accurate; it can only be discussed as-is hence the close reason and closure.
I know there is no cookie-cutter type answer to the question "how much does one's projected lifestyle impact their workplace reputation and prospects?" but I would like to hear some feedbacks.
Red flag 1 (not removed by your edit): Feedback, not answers. The problem isn't that there's no one cookie cutter type answer, but there aren't answers, just opinions (that's not just how it sounds, it's how the question reads as well).
I am curious on feedback how
Red flag 2 (removed by your edit, but the meaning of the post is otherwise the same)
And is a "renaissance man" typically someone perceived to be too much all over the place to be trusted to maintain a steady focus of attention?
I have observed that employers favor kind of boring and regular people for their stability in promoting. I hope I am wrong. How does one effectively isolate their life away from work with their career? Or is it an exercise in futility?
Big red flag 1: Multiple questions, largely unrelated. Each of them Bad Subjective and unanswerable too, but I'm getting to that.
Big red flag 2: "Is a renaissance man typically...":
- What's a renaissance man? Without an agreed definition this is NARQ and invites debate
- "typically seen" by who?
- What's the problem you're solving? It's a discussion, not a search for a solution

From the FAQ:
Your questions should be reasonably scoped. If you can imagine an entire book that answers your question, you’re asking too much.
Entire books could be written on this topic (I'm sure there are several Self Help books on this exact topic). It's way too huge for one question. Additionally it's still Bad Subjective; it's soliciting opinion.
This question has all kinds of problems as a question, and solving all of them would more or less require completely rewriting the question and compeltely altering it's scope and intent.
