Example: When I was younger, I had to pick my sister up from school. I took her to my mom's house and she noticed that the front flowerbeds had cabbages growing in them. She asked "Why are there cabbages in the front yard?"
"Because it's illegal to grow them in the back yard."
"Oh? Why is that?"
"It stems from The Great Depression. People ate more cabbage then since it was cheap, fed a lot of people and held for a while so less was wasted. The Federal Government passed a tax on cabbage growth to boost revenue and mandated that all non-farm-grown cabbages be grown in the front yard so that tax assessors could easily count them and tax accordingly."
And she believed it.
I'm very good at math, nearly a savant, and in some ways it is quite distracting from daily tasks.
I'm good at being the hero for friends, and sometimes this makes me the villain in my family.
I have the ability to remember most things with 95% accuracy as to content and context. Like a stenographer lives in my head.
I'm probably good at other things, but listing too many seems a bit like I'm boasting. I'm a bit more down to Earth than that.

1.) I have a bad habit of using a comma splice in sentences, and hate the MLA format for its arbitrary rules on comma usage.
2.) I've disowned 4 members of my family in less than 6 months for them threatening to physically harm my child, or being on the side of the people who said such things. C'est la vie.
