    Default is there a person with NO talent at all?

    what do u guys think?
    is there one?

    or,
    if one thinks he/she is,
    then perhaps it's probably just either:
    - the person hasn't found his/her talent yet,
    - other factors, such as: he/she hasn't practiced the basic level yet, to know which subject he/she is really good/excelling at, hence, talent.
    - other factor, such as unsupportive or supportive family background, circumstances etc, that either boost, or crushed a person's growth rate
    - he/she might be talented at something, but not passionate at that same thing, so it seems to appear that he/she's not good at it,
    - and other things?

    let's discuss about this.

    I guess it depends on whether we're defining talent in relative or absolute terms. If the only thing you're good at doing is something most other peope are better at doing, it'd be hard to call that a talent.

    It would be a talent in itself to have no talent.

    I don't think so. I know some people have no "practical" talents. If something is not exploitable it becomes useless and therefore "worthless" to others in most circumstances...
    Then people will say "that person has no talent".
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

    No way, talent is subjective. Being able to clean the house is a talent too.
