Sometimes people tell me how smart I am.
That I am able to do so many things and quite well.
That I seem to "just get it".
But I never feel that way. It's kind of flattering but I honestly never feel that way. I don't feel I'm smarter than anyone. That's a good thing I suppose. Once I would believe I'm the best in anything, I wouldn't be hungry to learn and stay motivated.
So a super-power is what I call a basic fundamental understanding that can be applied to so many others.
Most of my superpowers are in computers and software 🤓
But I understand the underlying principle that HTML is a way to describe elements on a page. So now I understand how their usage is implied. I could've just copy and pasted everything, but knowing these mechanics are quite important.
Understanding the underlying concepts of technicality really helps me move forward. Anything on a computer is made by a programmer. I don't see myself as a great programmer, but understanding how the programmer approaches their work, helps me understand the program I use.
I understand software interfaces. I've seen the same patterns over and over again so when I open a new program, usually after 10-20min or so depending on the complexity I can just roll with it.
What are your super-powers?
