Thread about talents

What is a talent you have? Can be “useless” or otherwise.

My friends think I’m an endless reservoir of song lyrics. They’ll start singing something and be unable to recall the lyrics past a certain point in the song, then I’ll step in and help them out. I don’t see a practical application for this talent outside of a singing career, and I can’t sing, lol. :laughing:

My talent is having schizophrenia.

My second talent is figuring out how to get rid of it.

I’m pretty useless otherwise. Should probably skill up in something.

It would have been much easier to answer this a few years ago. Now I’m not sure what to say…

I used to have a great talent : problem solving. But now my main talent appears to be avoiding my PC and doing everything on my phone. :joy:

You may have talents you haven’t noticed. I learned to draw just doodling and I started learning clinical psychology with google. It wasn’t until years later I relized I was good at these things.

Thanks!

How do you utilize that clinical psychology? Did you get a certificate / degree in it?

I dabble in health science, particularly around schizophrenia, but I don’t have the mental fitness to get a degree in it, in some capacity.

Kind of stuck with remote work, due to being mentally frail.

I am musically talented… though for some reason, the guitar stumped me. I can play the violin, viola, piano, flute, french horn, alto sax, clarinet, piccolo, etc.

I’m also great at training and working with dogs. Even disabled ones (deaf and/or blind).

I play guitar…how did it stump you if you can play those other instruments? I probably couldn’t.

No clue… I think it’s because I learned the other instruments when I was still well and retained the ability to play them. The guitar was new to me, post-diagnosis.

I am an artist, an author and a musician…not in that order…I don’t paint anymore…just don’t have the heart for it.

I’m sorry you don’t have the heart for it. That’s sad.

I can bend my little fingers backwards until they’re in a 45° angle with the back of my hand.

Does that hurt? :o

No, but people find it pretty shocking for some reason.
It feels like a good stretch. I’m considering learning how to make it more theatrical by making it seem like I’m breaking the finger.

Good memory. Apply to something else- to make money?

A talent that I haven’t or have infrequently mentioned is singing.A while ago I wanted to make covers of some tracks by razed in black. With me doing the vocals. Thing is, the structure is slightly random.
