    I would like to be able to draw. Anything that was in my head. All these extremely cool things. That would make me happy

    Write and draw my own comics. Maybe act.

    There are several:

    - Reading really fast [say, five seconds per page]
    - Running really fast [say, three minutes per mile]
    - Flying
    - Reading minds [at will; I wouldn't want this to be involuntary, because that would be wierd/annoying/invasive at times]
    - Singing
    - Playing the cello [I used to, but haven't touched it in years... it's gathering dust in a closet at the moment]
    - Playing the piano
    - Playing the violin
    - ... playing any musical instrument
    - Being able to jump five times higher than my height, from a standing position
    - Ability to snap my fingers and have my house instantly neat and tidy
    ... etc.

    songofsappho wants superpowers. Is that included in the criteria for talents?

    I'd want to be able to sing the depth of what I feel but never seem to be quite able to express. Actually, I'd take a talent in writing or film-making or whatever if I could just do that.

    This is going to sound cheesy but,
    I would really like to have a talent of understanding the world around me and the universe.

    And, of course, be talented in everything.

    I'll cheat:

    Learning new things (understanding, memory, and performing tasks). I'm already fairly good at understanding things, but it would rock to be even better. And naturally if I were very good at all those things I could be very good in almost anything else.

    Playing all musical instruments...just for the fun of it because I think I could do most things ok already anyway, when it comes to music I'd like to be good instead of knowing how to strike a few chords.

    This is interesting. The reason I was curious about this is that when I asked my SLI brother and SLE sister they both said they wanted a talent that would make them rich, filthily rich. Afterwards they would do whatever they pleased

    but everyone here seems to want a talent that would make them happy

    with the exception of Songofsappho, who just wants it all

    I would like to be able to speak any language just by shaking hands with a native speaker, to be able to fly at great heights with no harm to myself, and sing so beautifully that peoples heads would explode.

    Shit like this is what happens when you open up the flood gates to superpowers.

    Captivating people and making them connect with me emotionally, in a deep way. The rest would fall into place from there.

    I'd like to be able to spot all ISTps! Or, sing. Or hip hop dance -- have you seen that thing called the "clown walk"? It looks so interesting, but I can't figure it out. Any of the above.

    As lame as it sounds being able to see like an aura of socionics type around everyone would be pretty cool i recon. Blue for ISTp, red for ESTj, pink for ISTj etc. I almost believe that if we all keep at it, one day you might be able to get this proficient.

    A talent?
    Understanding, wisdom. Know how and what to cultivate, and make the best/'right' decisions. What to take and what to leave behind. How to interact with people in a way that develops them - build people up.

    And the dedication/discipline to sustain that.


    a special power would be to stop time so that I could focus on things indefinitely and a thoroughly as I'd like, without being crunched or rushed.

    With my freeze ray
    I will stop the world

    With my freeze ray
    I will find the time to
    Find the words to

    Tell you how
    How you make
    Make me feel
    What’s the phrase?

    Like a fool
    Kind of sick
    Special needs
    Anyways

    With my freezeray
    I will stop the pain
    It’s not a death ray or an icebeam
    That’s all Johnny Snow

    I just think you need time to know
    That I’m the guy to make it real
    The feelings you don’t dare to feel
    I’ll bend the world to our will
    And we’ll make time stand still

    That’s the plan
    Rule the world
    You and me
    Anyday

    Love your hair
    ("What?")
    "No I . . I, uh . . . love the . . . air"
    Anyway

    With my freeze ray I will stop –
    Moonlight will fall
    Winter will end
    Harvest will come
    Your heart will mend

    ha, reading this made me really want to know a female enfp irl I can just imagine how we would take all kinds of wacky classes all the time. The classes would prolly only hold interest for a couple of weeks though, but so what. It would still be fun

    Jewels, be my imaginary friend! We could soo master the clown dance - in our heads at least, ha ha

    oh on a more grounded note I'll tell you how I spot a SLI. I don't know if you can use this, or if it's strictly me that work this way:

    girl SLI: the kind of person that make me think "I wish I was more like her"
    It's something about the way they they don't let anything dictate them other than themselves. I like that. Plus they are way cooler than I will ever be
    also they don't look or dress like other girls. I dunno what it is but there is clearly a difference. It's not that they look masculine or anything. They are not 'cute' I guess

    boy SLI: these I have noticed come in various forms (or maybe just moods). Some are more shy than others. The first kind can seem cold. Not hostile (at all), but concentrated and active in doing what they might be doing. They seem to not take interest in what goes on around them, and quite contempt in themselves.
    The other kind is a bit harder to spot, as I don't notice them straight off. They are very quiet and unconsuming. No one seems to notice them, but they notice EVERYTHING! Their eyes may have a shy look to them, but they will see everything that's going on around them LOL.
    Both types are really friendly, once you start talking to them
    oh and even if they like u they won't show it. Not in a 'nomal' or 'aggressive' way at least. They might say a couple of words to you and maybe come with some other subtle hints (do stuff for u), but they won't likely make a proper move on you or try to draw attention to themselves, which would prolly either creep u out or turn u off anyways
    So it's ur job as an IEE to befriend them, once they have indicated their interest in all but obvious ways LOL
    This all sounds weird but I swear it feels completely normal. Sort of the SLI-IEE chain of action, I guess

    oh, and all I know tend to be tall and lanky. They walk *extremely* slow or at least very leisurely. Others think they are really cold but I always saw them as 'friendly'? go figure
