My skillset is slighly different. Since i'm a engineer, it boils down to thinking, abstract problems, how can you see problems from a different direction.
Some people see it differently than you do, but they both satisify the problem.... What really sets the people apart is that they catch onto concepts quickly and can apply them without any issues or though. The rest of us... well we have to work a little harder to understand.
I have taught math for a few years and have a semi-unique ability to see the solution and work backwards to the question. Not alot of people have this and they think i'm a super smart... not really its just my brain operates differently, they have some talents I could not even begin to match...(like all you super Artistic people... dammit, I have to work HARD at it! (*grumble grumble*) ha ha
A little of this and that, hopefully nothing explodes right away....
