    Yeah Tom, I play the piano well and good here. I always wonder how this could be without anyone’s assistance.

    No, I can’t think of one. I’ve heard people describe it as someone as having a ‘natural talent’ or as being ‘born gifted’.

    What a tricky question ha ha. I guess LOVE qualifies for this. For one when the love bug bites you then you just feel it. No explanation required. It just transcends it.

    I am really not sure how to answer this. I will try to ask this question to my friends too..hahaha.. I guess I am a technomaniac, I can easily learn things that is connected with technology.

  • David Tjoe

    Well, it seems I know this answer but I don’t know how to answer it. Give me more time to answer this question.

  • Danielle M

    Well, just like the good book stated, there are things humans aren’t preview to and has such we are limited in knowledge. So yes I wouldn’t know everything.

    I’ve had instances wherein I just knew things, especially about people. People I don’t especially like, for instance, I have this unusual dislike of them, and then they end up being people who are easily the worst type of people. I don’t know how I do it, as I know myself to be such a gullible and naive type of person.

    I think when this happens, it’s our brain’s way of helping with self preservation. Many times our gut feeling is never wrong.

    I can’t think of any right now. But I got a friend who can make foreign delicacies without any prior training.

    I have a tendency to recognize pain in others, even when they are able to hide it from a roomful of people. I cannot always see it in myself, or if I can, I can ignore it very easily. But I can see it in a face, a glance, a dropping of the eyes. Even in someone I had never seen before that day. The voice need not quiver,the lip not shake. I can see it. Behind the smile.

    I was recently on a video chat with a group of people I had never seen before, and I only knew of one. There was another who spoke very casually in tone and in a clipped kind of sentence which did not give much away of something seen a lifetime ago. Without knowing how or why, I knew that it was true, I knew there was pain. I asked and the response that they were ok, they just think of certain things daily. The subject moved on. I could see my clock on my phone – it was two minutes before the image and the trauma that had arisen had truly been replaced enough in that moment so that this person could move on with their focus and the conversation. I do not know how I know it started, and I do not know how I know when it ended. I do not even necessarily know if I was right. I just know that I know it. Does that make any sense?
