Anime drawings and writing. Although I haven't written any fiction in years, so I wonder if I'd still be good at it...

But mainly Tetris.

I'm really good at video games.

I learn things really quickly.

Despite being clumsy as a child, I am very graceful now.

Thanks to working out, I am decently strong and my body is starting to take shape.

that goes for me too; it took me forever to learn basic balance skills, such as riding a bike. But now I enjoy biking more than anything! and I love to play videogames; I have developed the skill and reflexes as a teen that I didn't have as a kid.

I feel the same way about music. I'd love to be able to express myself with music, like playing the piano or the violin, but nope. :?

I know. It seems like we all want to be able to do things that we can't normally do! I'm more on the logic side of the spectrum, but I'd love to be creative once in a while!! I can act, sing, and write poetry, but that's the extent of my creativity.

and as for videogames, I'm the master of Guitar Hero and DDR:D guaranteed. :D

I can play "Through the Fire and Flames" on Guitar Hero, expert, without looking, on top the guitar if necessary :D and with two hands on the frets during the two-handed sections.
:D

I'm trying to see if I can play Guitar Hero and DDR at the same time. :D :D :D

Talent - Finding the root of a problem and finding ways to resolve it.

Drawback - Its very hard for me to explain to others how i reached my solution so they can understand why its important that ALL steps I outlined are needed to fix the issue not just the ones that would fix the effects of the problem.

Think of it as a 'family tree'. The latest branches are the most numerous but if you go back far enough they all end up in a common ancestor. That's how I find the causes of problems.. in multiple 'family' trees..simultaneously. I trace all routes back until I find things that affect each other and put 'steps' to fix them.

The problem is, I cant seem to explain well how fixing something way down there fixes something on a different family tree (on a much higher branch) well enough for NT's to realize WHY its important and DO it not ignore it.

Had several instances of this in my last job :( One was a very serious issue that at the time, was not making trouble for us but I went to my manager time and time again telling that dumb cow that if X thing was not changed it would explode into a huge problem later on. Of course, she did not see it as a problem... a year later it literally exploded in her face and rather than her losing her job for her incompetence the company instead had to fire more than a dozen low level employees to recoup the lost cash.

*sigh*

Anything in involving abstract theories and patterns and using them to solve problems. When I find an idea I don't just see the idea itself but all the possibilities and implications as well. I am not just interested in "what is" in an empirical, scientific sense, but I am also interested in "what is possible" and "how can things be improved." In my mind the world is like a chunk of raw marble, ready to be carved and sculpted by my imagination.

Focusing on tasks for hours on end that would bore others to tears.
And Reading. From talking to people, I've determined that I probably read more books in an average year than most people will ever read in their entire lifetime. I read the entire Bible cover to cover in less than a week. And what I do is not what they call "Speed Reading" where you just skim through the thing quickly to get the gist of it. It's just regular reading, for hours on end, only stopping to eat and sleep (I take them to the bathroom with me). When I was 8 years old, I read a book called "The Robe" by Lloyd C. Douglas (over 500 pages), and did a book report on it for school. I think that was the point when they decided to have me tested to see if I was gifted.
