Would you like to have a super power? Well, it may surprise you that many of us have. Of course, it also depends on your interpretation of super powers.
Never mind all the super hero films where they have marvellous powers. I’m talking about normal people like us who can do extraordinary things.
A photographic memory is one such ‘power’, although it has never been scientifically proven, according to the New Scientist magazine. They say there is a condition called Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory (HSAM). This allows people to recall past events in detail, along with the exact dates when they occurred.
Ex-President of the United States, Teddy Roosevelt, was one such person. He could recite entire newspaper pages. He was also a speed reader and it’s said he could go through two or three books a day.
Other such superpowers are:
- Exceptional memory
- The ability to learn many languages
- Mimic birdsong by whistling
In fact, any talented person who does something others can’t is a superhero. Some are lucky and have useful talents that they can show off. Others, like me, have lesser ones.
I try to use my ‘talent” and I use the word loosely, to bring some good. Click the button below to find out what that is.
Meanwhile, let me know if you have any secret talents.
