In my life, it does. I follow resistive paths and succeed. My talents are just there, I don't use them productively. My talents are only used for relaxation and enjoyment. I don't know if I'd want to use them to make money... Seems like mixing them may cloud the talent. In some cases, it may not be that way. (Musical areas?) Then again, we see a lot of pop nowadays that doesn't reflect much talent, but they are the ones making all the money. I guess it depends on exactly what the end goal is.
