“Have you ever talked to talented people, watched their hands shaking…there’s a set of nervous reactions that we have when we’re faced with sub-standard work,” Ford said.
What an intriguing perspective from Paul Ford. The idea that talented individuals can show their talent by demonstrating their attention to detail on a given subject.
He defines talent as, “the demonstrated ability of an individual, when they perceive errors of form, to take specific actions to correct those errors.”
That is not an idea I would have every really conflated with a specific level of talent, but it makes sense as a marker for it.
