All human beings have talents… and weaknesses.
In their best-selling book, Now Discover Your Strengths, Marcus Buckingham and Donald O. Clifton define talent as “a recurring pattern of thought, feeling, or behavior that can be productively applied”. Neuroscientists define talents as synaptic connections that form strong neural networks in our brains. These networks are shaped by nature and nurture, and after we reach our mid-twenties, remain pretty constant throughout our lives. Talents endure.
