Abstract: We find a class of algebras $ \mathcal{A}$ satisfying the following property: for every nontrivial noncommutative polynomial $ f(X_1,\ldots,X_n)$, the linear span of all its values $ f(a_1,\ldots,a_n)$, $ a_i\in \mathcal{A}$, equals $ \mathcal{A}$. This class includes the algebras of all bounded and all compact operators on an infinite dimensional Hilbert space.
