A fun question I’ve heard people ask many times is, if you could have a superpower, what would your superpower be? It’s a neat ice breaker and you learn a bit about the person who answers. I have a couple picks; one is teleportation (across short or long distances, like NightCrawler) or Size shifting (the ability to increase or decrease my size, like Dr. Henry Pym). Not your typical superpowers of flying or super speed, but still pretty fun ones.
The other day I came across an interview that Sarah Lacy did with Andreeseen Horowitz and one of the questions she asked towards the end of the interview was, “What would your Mediocre Superpower be?” It’s a pretty interesting question since most people have a quick canned answer for their normal superpower. It seems like it would take everyone awhile to think about what their mediocre superpower would be but I had one right way. Being a terrible speller, my mediocre superpower would be the abilty to spell any word correctly, the first time.
What would your mediocre superpower be?
