I have always been a firm believer in natural talent as opposed to the ability to persevere, but lately, have gotten into many discussions between the two, and my views are starting to falter. My view on it is that someone who is born with natural talent will never have to work as hard as someone who isn't to achieve the same end results, and thus, if they work as hard, or just slightly less as hard, as the one with less natural ability, will still be better at whatever they are doing, regardless of what that is. The opposing view points said that, eventhough that one might have less natural ability, with the extra time put in to understand something, they will have better knowledge of it, but, I believe, with this, they are going back to equality within people, while I am trying to establish the point of unequality, because, no matter what peoples' rights are, we are all different, some with natural talent, others without. What are your takes on it?
