    Expressed Confidence in Yourself - Trumpet Blowing

    I just watched Ashley Banjo teach role players how to dance. The recurrent theme was lack of outward confidence and being introverted. I suppose forum posters may be similar.

    So, out of interest and without knowing most people on the forum, what can you brashly and confidently claim to be better than most, if not all, posters at?

    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd

    Isn't this something English culture generally frowns upon?

    Soccer and poker would be the two for me.

    I'd say so. It doesn't hurt though to be proud of what you are good at and occasionally express it.

    I also happen to be currently writing my annual evaluation for work so I'm trying to get into self congratulatory mindset.

    I dunno about comparing myself with the forum but I'm usually pretty competent in real life at writing/delivering speeches, presenting views and debating.

    The only thing I'm noticeably better than everyone I know IRL is a fairly arbitrary and perhaps meaningless skill of reading very, very fast which also gives me an unfair edge at things like IQ-logical reasoning/aptitude/assessment tests because - at the end of the day - these tests are trying to measure something somewhat related but still appreciably distinct and I just end up doing well simply because of the ability to read rapidly.

    This reminds me, I'm also amazing at Fifa. It's way beyond the stage where it's something to be proud of. It just lets everyone know I take video games too seriously and spent most of my teenage years not having any friends.
