Secret Talents


As an ice breaker it’s often asked “share one of your secret talents.” It comes up in conversation from time to time and it makes you contemplate, do I even have one? Some people can bend their tongue into a clover, others are double jointed, some can recite poetry, paint magnificent scenes, others can whistle with their fingers in their mouth. The list goes on and on of little quirks and talents we can hold but never know about one another. They separate us, an additional reason to make us different and unique from one another. 

Some people are talented musicians, professional shower singers, and others can hold their breath for an impressive amount of time. You hear stories of amazing singers who never sang in public or in front of their parents until they decided to unleash their talent on the world through a reality show. 

Some people have more subtle, yet incredibly valuable talents. For instance, knowing what to do to make someone feel better, having nurturing talents, or being able to keep a positive mind frame no matter what. So when you’re asked to reflect on your secret talents, rather than jump to what odd thing you can do with your body, or think of a talent you’ve practiced for years on end, consider your unique secret talents that make you who you are. Maybe you’re always thinking of others before yourself, perhaps you do random acts of kindness, you can make people laugh, or have a strong shoulder for your loved ones to cry on. Share your secret talent below. 🙂

  1. That’s a good idea! Whenever someone asks me about myself, all I can think to say is “I have an irrational fear of balloons.” I’m sure there are things that make me way more unique than that, but it’s always the first thing that pops into my head.

    • I’m sure there are qualities which make you more unique! We just tend not to think of them from an everyday perspective. Thanks for the comment!
