It’s true; I have a similar thing with music. I can play any instrument, have perfect pitch. TOTALLY useless talent for me, but I have it. I can’t understand someone who can’t discriminate each of the instruments in a band or orchestra and hear them playing separately, or be able to tell you what note a refrigerator motor is playing and all of it overtones.
Some things you can just “do”. Some things are a struggle. For me, I think it was an overcritical 3rd grade teacher that made me go, “forget it, can’t draw’ and it stuck with me.
