Such concision and clarity!  and you answered in the correct grammatical mood. I'll take these as evidence of your strengths.

Thanks for the compliment. I don't do many things well. But I know these as my strengths.

We have weaknesses in common. I am a horrible listener. I've always got other things going on in mind when I should be paying attention to the other.

What, did you say something?

I'm in my late fifties and still learning what I do well. I've known for a while that I'm a good actor and singer. This past year I've also learned I'm good at accents, character voices and improvisation. I'm a good cook and I'm good with kids. I'm good at explaining scientific principles. I think I'm a good friends, but that's for my friends to say. 

Good stuff.Thanks for including the small talents.  Those count!

Wrestle wild boars.

OK, more seriously:  I think I'm good at learning, analyzing, knowing.  I would like to think I'm good at writing, but I may be a poor judge.  At communicating.  At programming, I'm pretty sure.  But how do you know w/o independent evaluation?  My independent evaluations include:  grades and degrees (I must be good at going to school), student and administrative evaluations (so I think I'm good at teaching and whatever else faculty should do).  I have one editor that has liked my writing, and many that disliked it.  Jeez, I should have sent that one more stuff!

Good stuff. I think your writing is good. Your ideas are clear, and your language elevated without bombast. Of course, I'm no editor, but for what it's worth...

I'm pretty good at get 'er done.

Based on what others have told me, I'm good at photography, taking responsibility for doing things and then doing them without bothering others about it (unless I need to), and doing behind the scenes stuff to help events run smoothly. I'd also like to think I'm good at writing (I even have a blog), but I'll let you guys be the judge of that.

There's a few things I'm working on at the moment, like being more considerate of others and being more respectful of women, but I wouldn't consider them strengths just yet.

Writing, reading, tinkering with stuff, explaining stuff.
