People have innate skills which often come in handy because there is only so much you want to actively put in the effort to learn. Instant reflexes are an innate skill. For this I'm truly grateful since having grown up with siblings and learning to be constantly vigilant to defend myself from their attacks, I would have been in deep trouble otherwise.

People have innate skills such as empathy, which I find curious because this is something I genuinely didn't develop until much later (I was a really mean child). Recent studies show even procrastination might have a strong genetic component to it.

People have innate skills but, as our cover story this week is about to tell you, parenting is not one of them. I should have figured this out when a classmate would frequently show up to school with bruise marks in different parts of their body, but meaningful observation is another skill which didn't kick in for me until much later.
