- What are you good at?
Everyone is good at something.
If you genuinely don’t believe it, then you’re very good at being modest, whilst you’re simultaneously terrible at singing your own praises.
I’d say there’s a number of things I’m above average at, a handful of things I’m actually quite good at, and perhaps one or two I’m actually very skilled at. Sadly, the one or two things aren’t likely to make me rich or famous any time soon unless a huge amount of luck is also involved.
I also make up for being good, or above average in something’s by being woefully terrible at many others! Sometimes I would gladly give things up just to be a bit better at getting up in the morning (exceptionally bad at this!), be a little bit more organised, or less of a scatterbrain for instance… And that’s just for a start!Posted 4 years agoBreganteSubscriber
I excel at dealing with large amounts of conflicting information and reading between the lines to establish the most likely scenarios and determining the most appropriate course of action.
Or that’s what my last two or three appraisals said anyway. In all seriousness I seem to have an eye for (work related) detail. Can’t be arsed in real life though.Posted 4 years agopeterfileMember
People who think they are really good/great at something often just haven’t met enough people who are better (although not through lack of those people, just limited exposure to them!).
There are plenty of people who will surround and compare themselves to family/friends/colleagues who don’t do something as well as them, then they feel “good” at it.
For example, I used to think I was good at snowboarding, even during a season I was in the top quarter or riders. Then I started riding with people who are a different level (two GB riders and a load of people who pay the mortgage riding), and I realised just how average I was.
I have so many passions, hobbies and interests, but I would reckon I’m average (at best!) at most of them.
there’s days at work when I wonder how i ended up doing what i’m doing and that it’s only a matter of time before i’m responsible for a £££££ cockup. but then there’s days when i’m utterly brilliant. Does that mean I am good or bad at my job? 🙂
It’s all relative innit.Posted 4 years ago
