Robin I hope you don’t take offence about my attempt at humour with starting this thread. You strike me as an intelligent person, probably more so than some people I’ve met.
Peter, I don’t think Robin is in any way perturbed. I think it’s more important to realize that everyone, no matter who they are, has both strength and weakness. That’s why we depend on others who have strengths in areas we don’t, AND why we share with others the strengths we have and they don’t. Everyone is an artist. Also remember that being brilliant doesn’t always make you an adorable person either. Some of the most brutal serial killers are geniuses in specific areas. Some of the most nurturing in the world are those whose strength lies ONLY in that area, whether human beings or critters.
