One thing I personally find interesting about talents (forgot to add in the first post)
I have noticed many people who are not the brigthest in school, often in the lowest marks, tend to be really good at their interests.
For example, many in the lower class, who do not have much skills and are not considered very talented are into sports. When I have talked with them,
they know all kinds of tactics, players, statistics, all by heart, yet they fail to learn math and remember history. Same is often with video games.
People, even when considered untalented, tend to be good at video games which they love, which also actually involve lots of learning.
For me personally it is kind of a proof for thinking that a lot of the "learning" is not genetics, but interests. When a person is interested in
something, they tend to learn it faster than the ones not interested at all. This may also play a lot of role in schools. The people who have no
interest in the subjects often tend to fail them and then considered untalented, although the whole time, what played role was not talent, but
I personally also believe that interest and passion might play as big role in development as talent itself.
