What's your thing?

I feel like every person has one thing they are best at. I noticed with my friends and with myself. I'm talking about the one thing people to you to ask you stuff related to this subject. I personally feel like the thing I'm most knowledgeable about is Computer related subjects. I have studied programming even though I didn't have to do that for school or anything, and I'm majoring in Computer Science next year. So what about you, what's the one thing you know you're best at?

I feel my strongest point is listening to others. My wife, my friends, her friends and my kids all actually talk to me knowing I will listen and give sound advice. Communication is another strong point, either verbally or written.

What a nice attribute. People always look for guidance, and you being the person to give it to your wife and kids is really awesome. Most kids don't talk to their parents about anything private because they know they wouldn't understand or look at the situation from their point of view. So it seems like you're a really cool parent.

Well Sum, they tell me a lot, but I am certain there some things they tell mom and not me and friends and not me. I do try to be understanding and remember back to when I was kid and how my dad wouldnt listen. He talks at you or with you, but it is difficult even to this day to get him to listen. My mom has always been the listener. Thanks for the compliment.

You're welcome. I will remember to keep in mind how I felt when I was younger when treating my kids, that's whenever I have them, which may be in a decade or so.

As of now, I can really say that I am best at this certain language. The dialect of China which is Chinese Mandarin. Because of the things like watching Chinese drama and reading Chinese books enhanced my ability of this language. I can even talk to my Chinese professor in Chinese. I don't say that I am fluent. I am just good at this.

I think it's useful to know more than one language. I know Arabic besides English. Although no one I know in real life speaks English as their first language, I think I managed to improve my English well in the past couple of years, by watching movies and using the internet. I'm still working on it and hope to someday be able to speak it as fluently as native speakers.

I don't have special ability....just average. But I want to learning more about programming in java, python, or php. To get more chance.....and increase my income for online job.

I'm not really into programming any online related stuff, like websites. I learned C++ to program some of the more hardcore stuff. I once programmed a controllable sprite that ran perfectly. But now I know that it wouldn't work because it wasn't extensible, and so adding or changing the sprite would mean changing the entire code. Good luck with learning programming, I suggest you consider buying books instead of online tutorials. Books are more well made than most tutorials.
