I have a great talent for tai chi, for some reason. It's odd because I have a deformity, but I think my coordination is good.
I don't know if it will turn into a career, teaching involves a lot of social stuff, and a lot of very social people.
I'm using it to improve my health, haven't been sick (flue, cold) in over a year now,
for meditation, helps with anxiety and social encounters,
and hopefully it will function for me as a martial art if I'm ever gonna need it.
I think as an aspie you have the right mentallity for tai chi.

Other talents are:
writing, good with cats, smaller in drawing and music.

Unusually high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
Unusually high level of tolerance for tedious, repetitive tasks.
Unusual and unique problem solving skills.
I also have a little talent for writing, playing the piano, and relating to children and animals.
Working at the Library requires accuracy and attention to detail, tolerance for tedious, repetitive tasks, unique problem solving skills, writing, and relating to children.

I used to win awards at "inturpretive reading" on the drama team....which is very odd because I am told I have "flat effect"in my everyday speech and expression....maybe its because my preformance nerviousness made me dissociate and I became the character I was reading...dont know...but I always thought I would like to do books on tape but I hate reading "bad books",poorly written or romance type novels and that would limit the kind of jobs I could do...?

I also write poetry but unfortunately, Im the only person I know ,who likes it.....oh well, I am still going to continue torturing people with it (its a passive aggresive compulsion :D )

They didn't have those in Canada when I was the right age for them.

They're only really starting to have them up here now.

Am I bitter? Yeah, kinda. ;)

I know what's my talent, and it's singing. I am working to make it, I hope I make it despite my privacy issues...

Ah, what the heck. I'll go ahead and list some more things.

:arrow: I am an extremely fast typer. Graduated first in my class in both the 7th and 8th grades.

:arrow: Like someone here pointed out about themselves, I also have fairly good grammar. At least compared to most the people on the internet these days. It's not that huge of a deal though. I usually don't judge someone for their grammar; mainly for the content of their words.

:arrow: A few years ago I was familiarized with speed-reading. I'd say I can probably read faster than the average person.

:arrow: I'm a hefty guy. Which in turn, alongside past weight training, I am exceptionally strong.

:arrow: It seems that even from being a toddler, I have had inclinations toward being precocious. That may seem self-absorbed bragging, but in fact I am being straightforward and totally honest.

I play piano, guitar, and tin whistle (a little).
I have been teaching myself piano accordion for three and a half months. I have learnt twenty or so tunes already.
I class my voice as my main instrument though. It took me about fifteen years to realise that I am never going to be a pop singer, so I'm aiming for folk instead.

I used to do tai chi and karate, I sort of agree with the person who made the comment about aspies having the "right " mentality, I was fascinated with meditation for a while.

I had quite a talent for drawing as a child. I discovered one day that I could copy cartoon characters uncannily well. I was good at still life drawing too (after all, it's just copying what you see onto paper) although I hardly ever feel the urge to draw anything these days.

Oh, and I've always found spelling really easy. Words like encyclopaedia and the like. I read really fast too (even if the meaning of the words doesn't register straight away!)
