I am good at being a programmer. Note that this doesn’t mean that the thing I am best at is programming but that the job of being a programmer suits me well. I am good at following infrastructures, creating infrastructures, figuring out how things work, and working hard to get things done, and getting along with the odd personalities/egos in the programming field.
The sad thing is that I am good at almost nothing else so when programming goes the way of the metalsmith I am going to be fucked.

i’ll have to say i have some talent in the science area as well as the music areas. i do both jobs well but not to the level of a savant. the only thing i am truly a master of is drinking booze. if i could get paid to get drunk, i’d be rich!

Knit. And possibly crochet, anything that I’m making something.

Having a good time. I would say that is my greatest talent, I can turn just about any situation into a good time if given a chance. People 90% of the time have a good time in my presence as well.

I play an instrument. I am glad that I stuck with the technical side of things.
Because: I liked music, and could have been like… “I am so naturally talented, you can’t even understand”.
But when I followed through with actually learning to play, I feel like I learned a lot about patience, diligence, self-discipline et cetera.
And I am also able to write on blogs that it is something I do well.

I excel at business school. It confuses a lot of my professors and classmates because I have visible tattoos, I swear a lot, I don’t shave, and generally have a “‘fuck you’ attitude” (direct quote). However, on a consistent basis I academically smash heads on the rest of the student body.

I am not gonna be prideful; I am 100% Jill of All Trades, Master of none.I’m really good at so much stuff it would make your head spin, but just not professional at anything.I tried to think of ONE thing that perhaps I best people at, even in the small scope of say AVSQ answerers, and honestly I can’t think of one. I may be slightly better at talking Literature, Beer, or Culinary Arts than some, but honestly, apart from events that involve swinging a hammer or painting pretty pics, I admit that you would all probably best me, with ease.

I am superbly talented in some fields that are productive and some things that are not. Such as: procrastinating, multi-tasking, making a mess, getting babies to stop crying.
But I think my forte would have to be friendly chatter. And it usually sends the wrong signal. (Signals like: “I am interested in talking to you beyond this small, obligatory exchange; let’s get dinner or drinks sometime.”)

I am good at being very, very patient with people; I am good at listening, especially if I disagree or have heard it a million times already; I am good with people (I get along with anyone); I am good at forgiving others. You made a mistake or crossed me? No problem. We are all God’s children…
