My superpower is that I'm "good enough" at an enormous number of things. Plus, I'm ruthless enough to cut the cord when the facts speak. I've moved - cold - to three different places during my career once the facts and numbers said there was better pickin's elsewhere.


Has helped to keep me gainfully employed forever - except when I was in CT and there was no gainful employment to speak of.


Gainful employment was important to me, so as to fund my kids' educations without any of us going into debt.


Now that those hurdles are done with, I feel like hanging it up. Would be a stoo-pid thing to do, but there you have it.

ive thought deeply about this.

my superpower is in attracting women totally out of my league whether they are married, together or single. I have a penchant for making women want to leave the relationship they're currently in, if they're in one. The collateral damage is that the men they're with totally hate my guts because of this phenomenon. What can I do about this? I'm not premeditating any suave pickup artist techniques or using olfactory assistance (except the natural pheromones emitting from my un-showered body).

My downfall is that i'm clueless after the first sexual arrangement and i'm not much in the provider department.

I would like to use this superpower to bag me a financially well-off and pretty woman that doesn't sleep around but it just feels like I keep attracting celebrity females that acknowledge me as nothing more than a PR beneficial boytoy. Not that there's anything wrong with that for somebody of my age.

My superpower is that I will try new things. I question everything. I don't do it to prove others wrong, but genuinely to learn and understand. With that comes experimentation and trying new things. It keeps life fresh and exciting.

My quick take is that your superpower is wishful thinking.

I agree. But that is only because of past occurrences. It can't hurt to think what has been done will be done again.

My son has called me the "King of Wing". I will try new projects or take on tasks with little to no experience. Most of them come out great, with compliments and request to do it for someone else. While preforming these tasks or projects people will ask where did you learn to do that? My typical answer will be nowhere... I'm just "winging it!".

Your post interests me because I have often been told I am very good at giving public talks/presentations. I had to learn to do this for my work. Unfortunately, it was the thing I hated most about my job. I'm one of those people who is terrified of speaking in front of a crowd. And, really that was why I was good at it. Preparation and practice, practice, practice. Then, if I had an out-of-body, catatonic experience while in front of the microphone, I could just keep talking and no one would know!

No superpowers.
