Below is some opinion of Joseph Cohen, CEO of SelfHacked:
I actually don’t believe he possesses any ability that is so great by itself, he just has a lot of abilities that are usually not found in one person.
After interviewing many people, giving them tests, and then assessing their abilities has given me critical insights into what makes people successful – and what we look for in talent.
This study breaks down intelligence in three domains: verbal, reasoning and working memory, and I believe the authors are correct as far as intellectual abilities that predict performance in the modern workplace.
While genetics plays a large role, I think there is a significant role in changing your biology for enhancement.
It’s important to note that you don’t need all of these abilities, or in the same degree as Elon Musk to be successful. I’ve seen people be successful with only one of these. But it’s the combination of these that make Elon Musk so successful, which separates him from the rest of us.
