Talent v Interest

Personal opinion...

There are things people have interest in and no talent for and things people have talent for and no interest. 

How often do we base our jobs on the latter of the two?

    Pretty much always, I think … The only thing I ever studied in high school and actually used on a job was typing. I only took it to help me type my papers in college – then I didn’t go to college. Instead, I got a series of low-level jobs with extremely high responsibility and absolutely no reward. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    15 years later I finished my degree to get my INTEREST job of teaching. I had no TALENT for it. I now do a dispatching job that I have significant TALENT for but my INTEREST is waning. Is that what you were looking for?
