The way I look at it is that for T to be able to take on every vector of V as an eigenvector T must be the identity operator itself, or some multiple of it, otherwise it would not be able to take on these exact values of V. I'm wondering how I would go about proving this or if I am on the wrong track completely.

any help is Greatly appreciated!!
