We have a scale to measure whether someone is a genius or not, the definition goes on about being exceptionally talented or gifted but to be honest why COULDN’T everyone be a genius?
I love to hear what to do then try it out myself. Watching someone do something or hearing them tell me what to do I find to be easier then reading it but it doesn’t click with me until I do it myself.
I like someone to explain or show me then leave me to do it. When they explain it or show me it I can ask questions, something you can’t do when reading about it, but afterwards I don’t like having someone breath down my neck as I explore to do it myself. The fear of having someone constantly tell you that you are wrong is probably the thing that makes me that way. It goes back to school time when you’d have something explained or had to read it and have someone constantly there not to help but to constantly tell you that you were doing it wrong.
That doesn’t mean I actually learn that way. I’m a terribly slow learner and nothing actually HELPS me learn. I just have to keep cramming the same things into my head every day. Though I guess doing it does generally help.
If I could have any skill what would it be?
Pretty hard to figure out what I’d want. Something practical maybe? The natural skill to pick up languages? I’ve always been terrible and just sound silly when I try. Cooking? Simple things I’m all good with but the second I have to use the oven and not the microwave then its all over for me.
Then again wouldn’t it be cool to have a artistic skill? Drawing, writing, painting, crafting… There are so many and it would be lovely to be able to make something that others want to see.
Personally I think the skill I want to master more then anything is dancing.
I’d LOVE to be able to dance just about any style you threw at me. I once had dance lessons and for the safety of the people around me gave them up quite fast but I’d love to actually be able to do it.
There would be no point to it at all! It wouldn’t help me in life and it wouldn’t mean much outside of my own personal joy but it would be great.
I think I’d choose it over a more practical skill because I think it’ll make me happy. I like to dance even though I’m bad at it but I’d like to be able to do it well. I like a challenge so I don’t think making my life easier would make me happier but being able to dance would just be fun. You could dance any where and any time and being able to just enjoy yourself.
Yes I’ll have to say dancing will be the one skill I’d want.
Any better ideas?
