I still think I'm good at math 'cause the tests I took for a private school placed me in the 99th percentile. So I get to have the idea that I could be awesome at math without doing any, or I can at least delude myself by clinging to that one memory.
Isn't that like a myth , if you suck at numbers you are good at languages, and vice versa?
Yes that is a myth, dumb people just like to think they have some hidden value they haven't found yet, by assuming that because "everyone has their strengths and weaknesses" nobody can be strong or weak at everything overall. Which doesn't follow.
