  1. I think,yes, everyone is born with a talent,but not everyone improves it.It depends on what you mean by talent.In everyday life, we take for talent the factors that are most clearly visible, which bring a certain income(talent to sing, dance, cook, draw.But if we consider talent as something else (love,listen,be human), then this is much more difficult than what we are used to.

    You need to be able to develop talent ,you need to find it.Any flower needs water and care ,any flower has a talent for beauty.

  2. Either you are talented, or a gray mass, talent can be developed, but not further than the amateur level. Then, as they say, how many rectum do not torment… For example, Lermontov wrote his brilliant works when he was quite young. Mendeleev arranged the chemical elements based on one attribute, in fact by accident, and as a result, the table also observes 5 pieces of chemical and physical laws(electronegativity, etc.) It is not possible to develop it, either you are talented or not, but who knows, maybe you have not yet realized in what area you are talented!

  3. Of course it's fiction.

    Just like “all people are equal”. “everyone can become whoever they want, if they really want to.” “there are no ugly people”

    Well, and other things invented for tolerance and neuroses.

    There are just abilities for something – everyone definitely has them because a person has a brain. someone saws trees well, and someone solves problems.

    But what does talent have to do with it? Almost everyone can learn to draw and sing, as well as solve equations. But this is not a talent.

    And “genius is 1% talent and 99% hard work” is just hyperbole.

    Yes, even if you play the violin too much , you won't become Paganini, because he had a special brush and reaction speed, for example.

    Even strong-willed qualities are different for everyone and their potential for development is also different.

    It is a pity that few people realize this.

    When it comes to physical parameters. then we understand that a long-legged Black man will run a hundred-meter race three times faster than an athlete of short stature and not dark-skinned.

    But as for the “non-physical” here they believe for some reason that everyone is subject to everything, it is only necessary to want.

  4. Of course not. People are terribly unequal in terms of the capabilities of intelligence inherent in nature. For example, look in the direction of ludomaniacs and slot players. A person with a brain cannot perceive the success entourage in the form of bright neon lights without laughing and is able to read something about random number generators and gambling probabilities. Meanwhile, there are about 5% of such citizens and they are not yet the most stupid.

  5. You can read about the Polgar experiment. He once wrote an ad in the newspaper that he wanted a woman who would give him a genius. As a result, 3 children came out, not 1. And he taught them chess since childhood. As a result, all three of them reached great heights in chess, taking places at the World Chess Championships, including among men.

    In principle, I personally think so – you can just instill in a person the desire to earn a billion dollars and he will work very well, because there is not a single billionaire who would have won his fortune, and to earn a billion you need to study a lot, try and work. In this way, you will bring up a kind (you can't earn billions without working to meet the needs of other people), intelligent and law-abiding person. So even if he does not succeed, at least he will be a very necessary person for society.

  6. We're all geniuses. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its entire life thinking itself a fool.

    Albert Einstein.

    In other words, each of us is good at something, but what is it? that's another question.

  7. In such matters, I try to stick to Locke's theory. When we compare a man and a picture, we are convinced that a man is born, and a picture is made; and a man and a picture are changed when some new sensuous quality or simple idea is produced in them, which did not exist in them before.

    Therefore, until the acquisition of experience, to qualities that did not exist before, a person's consciousness remains like an “empty room”. Talking about innate talents here is useless. Because they manifest themselves over time, therefore, the emergence of talents is based on unequal abilities and inclinations of people with very different opportunities and individual perspectives.
