Talents are defined by the capacity of an individual to adapt to an environment generating value and earning the counterpart. The width and depth of these talents define the potential of the individual.
Talents are as diverse as the action fields of human beings.
Only when goals are achieved talents can be recognized as such.
These achievements are not necessarily contemporaneous with the action. Nobody doubts that Van Gogh and Nikola Tesla were talented. But when the talent largely exceeds the existing paradigms, individuals are marginalized by the environment.
Talents are discovered when people act in their environment. Talents are perceived through the difference compared to others. When an individual is using his talent he is perceived as:
- Focused: Talent implies the “alignment or neural circuits” to achieve a goal.
- Natural: When a talent has been trained, it flows naturally in its field of action.
- Credible: People who use their talents are consistent and therefore credible.
- Convinced: When adults use their talents they are sure about what they are doing.
- Self-criticism: The most notorious characteristic of talent is the implicit capacity for self-criticism. Self-criticism is what fosters personal improvement and implicitly develops one’s talents.
