What’s your ineffective superpower? – Marginal REVOLUTION


Trey Miller emails me about my polymaths post, and my commentary that: “Certainly one of my views in expertise search is that extraordinarily gifted persons are nearly at all times terribly good at a number of completely trivial duties.”

Tyler…I’ve referred to this as a “Ineffective Tremendous-Energy.”

I’m not a polymath, however one in every of my Ineffective Tremendous-Powers is the power to pour practically an identical quantities of liquid with out thought or effort. In follow, for instance: if I’m pouring wine for 4 individuals, there may be nearly at all times no seen distinction between the contents of the glasses. I’m not, and by no means have been, an expert waiter or held a associated job.

I’d like to see an inventory of different individuals’s examples…

I’m fairly good at realizing how lengthy a selected journey will take, or at waking up at precisely the time of my selecting (neither is completely ineffective I’d add).  How about you?
