Forget Bilingual

How about if you were multilingual? I wonder how that would be. I met someone who could speak 4 languages fluently. He said he knows someone who can speak 7 languages. I am unable to perceive the mindset that is required. It makes me think of how language is a major barrier for people to get to know one another. I'm one and a half-lingual. Fluent in English, and only understand my native language when family speak it. Does that makes sense? Wouldn't you know or relate to more people if you were not just bilingual, but multi-lingual? How would it feel ? I believe it is a fascinating talent.
