What’s Your Superpower?

A few weeks ago, I was at a writer’s workshop. One of the writers wore t-shirt that said, “I’m a romance writer. What’s your superpower?”

What's Your Superpower?That got me thinking. Each of us has a superpower. Do you know what your superpower is?

In that workshop, a number of writers had the romance writer superpower. Some of you, my readers, have the tester superpower. Some of you are chefs, and have the chef- or baker- superpower. Some of you are developers and have the the developer superpower. Some of you have that social grace and ease that I envy. That is your superpower.

Each of us has something that sets us apart from everyone else. Even if you share that talent or skill with other people, there is something about it that make your superpower uniquely your own.

It’s worth considering what your superpower is.

Here are some possibilities:

  • Do you have great ideas?
  • Do you build off of other people’s great ideas?
  • Do you facilitate other people’s building great ideas?
  • Do you build new and different things?
  • Do you see the world in new and different ways?
  • Do you apply the “old” or “traditional” ways in nontraditional settings?
  • Do you bring joy to people?
  • Do you make art of any kind?
  • Do provide people help?
  • Can you add to this list in some way?

I am sure this is not an exhaustive list. I am positive your superpower is not on this list. Please add to this list. Please list your superpower.

You have a superpower. You might not know what it is right now. That’s okay. It’s worth reflecting on and considering what your superpower is.

The question of the week, my dear adaptable problem solvers is: What is your superpower?

  1. Hi Johanna! Just last week I read an anecdote about little girl being asked what she would like her superpower to be, and she said that she would be “Refiller” – to refill empty glasses… plates…gas tanks…arms? Isn’t that just fabulous?!

  3. I as a Tester.

    I do the following:
    1. Learn new things from community, friends and by Self.
    And share the same, when the appropriate time arrives.
    2. I like to explore new things and then try out myself – how it works?
    3. I speak the truth. Lead others while i help to teach others.
    4. I test to check – if the software works as expected and it give valuable information to stakeholders, or its not expected.

    And.. I am a Super Power Tester :)

  4. I think my super power is – I’m the beaatch you want in your corner when the going gets tough. I’ll reflect on that for awhile.
