    Does anything come relatively easy for you compared to others?

    (Arguably) witty banter. [In real life, which is a far cry from my cranky lpsg persona]

    People ask me if I am a professional dancer in night clubs. "Do they pay you to dance here?", they ask. Dancing comes pretty easy for me.

    I had someone say something very unusual to me during the holidays. " Everything you do seems so effortless and easy for you!" When in truth all of my skills have come from a fair amount of work, study and/or training and practice.

    Yeh, I'm effortlessly tidy...altho I'm not sure if it's a talent, rather than a disorder, lol.

    Oddly, generally speaking I find complicated things fairly easy - and fall to bits on simple everyday stuff, which can be a bit of a pain in the arse. :/ Maybe it's psychological or sumthin?

    The only thing that comes natural to me is anything mechanical.

    I am "Mr. Fix it" to my friends and my general area. Especially when it comes to cars and firearms.

    Good answer Stretch.
    As for me charisma, people seem to want to be led by me.

    Public speaking and teaching. Anything to do with people. Also, better than average writer with no effort at all.

    Nothing I can make money out of unfortunately. I'm a good speller and I have very neat handwriting - that's going to get me a great career in TOTALLY FUCK ALL! I'm sure Microsoft Office is shaking in it's boots.

    I picked up masturbation at a very early age.
    Sarcasm.
    Apathy.
    Laziness.
    Delightfully pretentious.
    Eccentric.
    Twisted humour.
    Smutty humour - I was blessed with a filthy mind.
    Melodramatic - I've always thought I could be a decent actor.
    Passive-aggressive - I'm VERY good at this.
    Receiving odd comments. Example: "You remind me of my nephew.....but he's much nicer."

    I know I've listed humour twice but my twisted humour and smutty humour are both so well developed I felt they should be listed separately.

    Does deepthroating count? I guess so, it did come naturally and relative to the general public (this site excluded perhaps) is not so common.

    With relative seriousness, Cunnilingus. I've loved it from day one of my sexual life, so maybe like Nudie, there has been a lot of practice :smile:.

    I have the ability to,

    Trip and fall over air.
    Be incredibly aggravating without much effort.
    Make horror movie screams.
    Make people smile, a lot.
    Put people at ease.
    Create rough art.

    Don't do yourself down. Talent is not an oversupplied commodity, you should be confident and find where your talents are needed.
