is talent learned or genetically acquired?
December 28, 2006 10:15am CST
each person has his own talents. but others, for some reason, excell in some aspects. they have a way of doing things outstandingly. is talent inherited genetically or can just be acquired through exposure in the right environment? please do share your thoughts on this one.

I think it depends on the talent. I think certain things like intelligence for example, are genetically determined. But how much you know (how you use the intelligence), is learned. Some things may even be a combination. Like maybe a person is genetically geared toward being a good musician. But still, you need to practice and learn and the music. You aren't just born knowing it.
