It's really difficult to find out what special powers people possess.

Who wants to tell a potential employer that they are learning how to play guitar, love to crochet or have an interest in sci-fi.
A famous grandmother once said 'there's a hero in all of us', and I really believe that.
Finding out if somebody is secretly yearning to be a pop star or fiction novelist is a great way to figure out what else they're good at.
