(wow, I really messed up that title huh? Sorry, its 6AM and im without sleep)
What other talents do you have unrelated to internet marketing?

I play the Drums, Trumpet, and Guitar(just started on the guitar).
I'm quite good at photography and even worked a few jobs before realizing it wasn't what I wanted to do.
I write fiction and poetry.
I can understand French, and slowly speak back in it. lol
I'm good at public speaking.
I'm one hell of a Starcraft and Poker player.

Just to name a few...

How about you?

    No talents, really. It's easier to list what I'm not good at.

    What I'm not good at:
    --Music. Very bad at it. Strangely, I actually scored "way better than average" in a musical-ability test, which was a frightening result (makes me fear for the human race).
    -- Languages. Can't even speak English, my mother tongue, properly (not a candidate for radio DJ job). Did manage to learn Mandarin under the influence of intoxicating actresses. (By the way, before anyone gets too proud about learning a foreign language:
    The genius dog with a 1,022-word vocabulary - The Week)
    -- Math. Just not good with numbers.
    -- Chess. Just bad, as in crappy. I'm right-handed. My kooky left-handed brother once beat the Ottawa chess champion in a game of chess. Me, I once got defeated in a chess game by a 3-year-old (no, not a prodigy).
    -- Fighting. Can't focus long enough to fight well (I might notice a pretty beam of light going through the window, then get KO'd)

    I am good at:
    uh, uh...I'll have to revisit this

      I have been a heavy equipment operator for 18 years so I guess I am good at it.
      Trouble is I could never figure out how to take that talent online.
      Always wished I could put all those years of practice to good use now that I would like to get out of the business. Hmm.... virtual equipment operator game anyone?
      I play guitar a little but don't think you would call it talent. LOL

    I can pat my head and rub my belly at the same time.

    I had planned on making a career out of this talent, but nowadays all the work in this field has been outsourced to third world countries.

    Another sad sign of the timee.

    Is IM a talent?

    I'm artistic, but could never make much money at it. Everyone wanted custom stuff, I'll make what I want, when I want and however I want. Enjoy it much more that way.

    I can also turn my tongue upside down.

      You can certainly utilize Internet to good effect for that. Once TV was the only way to broadcast audios, films or videos to massive audiences, and usually involved a lot of money. Now you can even reach huge audiences with $0.00. It is no longer imperative to get corporate approval for creative endeavors to reach big audiences.

    I can ride a 2 meter tall unicycle backwards. I'd call this a completely useless skill and certainly not a talent.

    (Also, I have to say that for anatomical reasons, unicycling is better suited for females than males.)

    Talents... I don't know if this is considered a "talent", but I am super duper observant and intuitive. I notice any changes in a room or place immediately and I pick up on people's behaviors and how they're feeling in a split second. I can read people extremely well and pick up on lies or other tense and uncomfortable feelings.

    I probably could have a been an excellent detective, FBI, CIA, CSI, or anything in related fields. Or, I could have probably been a great scam artist and acted like a psychic.

    Either way, I feel like it's also a curse sometimes because I'm always very aware of tense and awkward situations and I often feel uncomfortable at these times.

      Same here. Usually I sense how they feel and I can tell immediately whether a person likes me or not. I just know in a sec when I first meet someone.

        Exactly, and the opposite is also true. I can sniff out a shady character, or a good person, in a matter of seconds it seems. My suspicions are then almost always confirmed later on down the road.

    I have an affinity with dogs that not too many people will ever match or even come close to. I can teach them abstract conceptualizing and basically talk to them in my language and understand what they are telling me in theirs.
    I'm also good at reading animals in the wilderness. Have yet to be maimed or devoured by one even though I've had to change my drawers a few times after some more precarious encounters.

    I have a talent for healing.

    I can zone in on an agate at 50 paces. If it's there, I just know it.

    I am a natural dancer - limber and coordinated, although nobody would think it to watch me I can move with extreme speed when need be.

    I am also talented in absorbing information and understanding the logical elements, and synthesizing sometimes seemingly unrelated elements into a comprehensive whole.

    I have natural talent for writing informational lit - and now testing to see if I can write fiction as naturally as well. We'll see.

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head. I can say that when I'm outside of the realms of my interest areas and not educated in a field I can be a complete idiot about it. For example - I don't have one whit of interest in learning technology and from what anyone could tell, including myself, I have not one drop of natural talent in the area either.
    Oh well -- if I could do it all myself, why would I need a planet with other people on it? LOL.
