I have a talent for spotting bullshit and calling it out. You may not think of this as a talent, but I have found it comes in quite handy and not many people possess it or embrace it. Does this talent get me into trouble? Sometimes. Will this talent potentially inhibit my ascension to an upper management position with my current company because I’m not willing to bum pat and kiss ass while I propagate the bullshit? Maybe. Would I trade this talent? Not in a million years. You have no idea how free it feels when you have not only spotted bullshit but have brought it out into the light of day so everyone must acknowledge it for what it is. There are never elephants in the room when I’m around. Do I come off as abrasive to people? Possibly. Do I care? Nope. One of my favorite quotes is (paraphrased) ‘Always tell it like it is because those who care don’t matter and those who matter won’t care.’
Now, for those of you who were hoping for “normal” talents… I play piano, I play guitar, I draw (better than my Sister but not better than Hubby), I run, and I write fiction.
