What is your strangest talent? How did you discover it?
My boss says I "connect the dots" - so she gives me projects to look over to make sure a step is not missing. But where I really notice it is driving - unless it is packed bumper to bumper, I can see a path through traffic like buttah. I can cite many instances of people seeing me do this on the road and following me through! This helps at conferences and in crowds at concerts too.
I discovered that I recognize people by voice, even though I have trouble recognizing the faces of white people. I can identify movie star voices in films where they are in costume and can't be recognized by sight.
I locate birds and wildlife by ear also. I can walk in the woods in almost total darkness and identify animals by sound and scent. Everywhere I go, I am aware of all the bird species around me and can instantly pinpoint a strange bird in the seeming jumble of sound, even if I'm not aware I'm even paying attention.
I can blend into the woods and become invisible to deer and other wild animals. I have even walked into the middle of napping white tail deer herds bedded down in the woods, and left again without being detected. I deduct points from my personal score if I'm ever detected.
I have two strange talents. One is the ability to line up things in space perfectly even without measure. Second is an incredible visual memory. I remember where my lockers were in school, where I sat in classes. All I do is think of some place I was, then I can visually see it perfectly. I discovered the first talent when I moved into my first apartment and began decorating. The second memory talent was discovered during a verbal IQ test while in college.
