hehe, I have a sixth sense for numbers. I can "feel" if an answer is correct or not

although, technically it's a fifth sense, since my sense of smell doesn't work :D

Memorizing many kinds of facts (about my interests and trivial facts), mental calculating, playing videogames.

Maybe I would be better at drawing if I practiced everyday.

I'm interested on music, learnig to play piano or guitar, but I don't have the support I would like to have. Sometimes I try to practice with a little keyboard (I have never taken piano lessons). I just think in a song I like (frequently videogame music), then I try to play it with the keyboard, my twin siblings and other people say "Wow, how do you do it?".

I do the videogame music thing too :D my favorite is Tetris. :D

Lately I've discovered a new talent. I know next to nothing about pianos, yet I can find the exact note I need, just by pressing a key that I think is in the correct spot. I don't know the name of the notes I'm hitting, but if you play a note on the piano while I'm not looking, and then let me try to find it, I can get it in one hit. :S
My "gift" is numbers, so I've yet to explain this new ability. :S

Read some Vitruvius, he's a Roman architect from the older ages. He advocated chiefly the vastness of knowledge which an architect was to possess, so that he may not be only a designer in stone, but an artist in physical space. Anyways, I've taken recently to the view that aspies are differently proportioned versions of Vitruvius' ideal architect in that they are able to pick up on things far out of their academic context, and incorporate them into a great range of talents.

If your talent is not having a talent, then you can logically exploit said talent by claiming it as yours! And if you say your talent for music is that you have no talent for music, then maybe your real talent for music is just a contradiction of your lack of talent! And it's already apparent that you're good at contradicting lacks of talent! :D
