    So, what makes you an exceptional indiviual? What seperates you from the rest of us? Be as conceited as you can!

    As for myself, I am an exceptional salesman. I have the ability to persuade people, and I learned to pick my battles.

    I also have the ability to make people feel special. I can make anyone feel special about his or her self.

    what about you?

    I'm the hottest person I know. I wish I could make out with myself.
    aww yea. :rolleyes:

    but seriously...

    I can go on and on about almost any subject.
    I can BS my way out of almost any situation. (heck yaaaa)

    I'm the economics freak of my family. (well.. the living family that lives in the US... Of the WHOLE family, not so much. Any Singaporeans know of a certain Dr. Money in the newspaper? THAT'S MY UNCLE!!!)
    I'm the only of this generation who is {planning on/will get} a Ph.D. in Economics.

    12 years of violin, 3ish of viola. I'm the most accomplished musician in the whole family (even the extended family, and going back into the past.)
    Yeah, while length of study has nothing to do with how good I am, I think I'm pretty good.

    I dunno. I had to ask my mom for these, except for the first one.
    She also said that I'm "very tall, that's exceptional!!"
    aahahhaa, I love it!

    Is it getting hot in here . . . or is it just KT? :rolleyes:

    I'm not exceptional at any one thing, but I'm very good at almost everything (sounds kind of conceited, I know, but it's true). It doesn't matter the subject or skill, I am usually very good at it. I'm exceptional because I'm very well versed.

    Depending on what you do, that can be a very intense degree. Undergrad econ is known for being pretty easy, but graduate econ is nuts. Most Econ grads were Math majors in undergrads, at least at my school (Cornell). I'm a math major myself, and I would like to think a pretty decent one, but I've seen some intense math written on a board (profs tend to leave their work up on the board and the next prof erases it) that was from some graduate course and was waaaay over my head.

    So good luck with that ph.d. :rolleyes:

    I'm an Aussie. :D

    I can eat fresh seafood and tropical fruit for Christmas lunch.
    I can walk to the beach in less time than it takes me to walk to town. I can out drink nearly everyone I know.
    I can say, "Oh it's just a snake."
    I can go outside in the middle of winter on a cloudy day and get sunburnt.
    I can walk to a friends place through the middle of town drinking a beer and no-one will say a thing.
    I can laugh at myself, my country and my culture.
    I don't have to drink Fosters.
    I can throw a prawn on the barbie - not a shrimp (we don't have shrimp here).
    I can drive for 15 hours and still be in the same state. In WA I can drive for days and still be in the same state.
    Japanese terrorist groups can detonate the world's first non-governmental nuclear weapon in our country and nobody notices.

    Sweet! I'm all over my (two) Ph.D.s!

    yea... one in Econ, one in Finance. It'll be NUTS

    Methinks I'm too ambitious sometimes.
    but then, I'm all "screw that!"
    I'm pretty Math-y. I think I can handle it.
    And if I can't, I'll be the best stock-girl ever!! :D

    I'm extremely well spoken and a great writer.
    I "read" people really well, meaning I usually understand a lot about them very quickly.
    I remember details of conversations and events that happened years ago with perfect clarity.
    Nobody beats me in an argument.
    And I've never in my life broken a promise.

    I can ride a unicycle, and juggle, but not at the same time :(

    although it's been a while since I've laid my feet on that precious one-wheeled bike :D

    I have incredibly tough fingernails. I have yet to ever break one.

    That's about it.

    i can really excel at math if i wanted to, but i don't since i hate just math if it has no applications

    i can also be a good salesman since i worked as a kid, commission only, during slow times at my dad's store, but i don't like to sell stuff

    i think i am a good techie, but it increasingly bugs me to troubleshoot computer problems so i do this less and less and do my other business more

    i can come up with funny and cute stuff, pokemon type cute, but i would be too embarrased to show anybody

    i can..he he...can't mention that but at least i like it...unlike the above mentioned skills ;)

    -I'm the youngest camera mapper I know - Rare 3D skill. Learned it during my junior year in high school while an intern at PixelCorps :cool:

    - Using Pro Apps like After Effecs, Photoshop,C4D, and Final Cut Pro is my idea of fun. I hope to land a job where I can have fun all day :eek: :eek:

    I am me.
    Knowing what to say and when to say it comes in a close second. Or first, depending on how you read the above.

    I'm smarter than most kids in my high school and teachers notice it.
    I am one of the few people who stay away from all trends yet manage to be "cool" that way.
    I usually win arguments.
    I am very persuasive.
    I am very ambitious.
    I've never lost a physical fight.
    I can make people feel like morons to extreme measures.
    My mixed cultures formed a not so ugly face.
    I can become stronger and lose weight with almost no effort.
    I am sarcastic, unique, intelligent, and i am proud but not conceited.

    I'm pretty much asian, but to top that off, my name is Jane. And my last name is Lee.


    my #1 need to see movie is the grace lee project - sounds great, debunk the asian girl stereotype using only women named grace lee :D

    edit: two stories about my name and how common it is:
    1. last time i registered something i bought at the apple store at the store, the iPod ended up getting registered to a Jane that had the maiden name Lee, who lived in Pennsylvania.
    2. last time i was at the genius bar being asked about which Jane Lee I was, there were like 6 other Jane Lees, and so we had to go through the list person by person to see if it was me or someone else.

    And that was at the Apple Store alone :p
