Think of all the things we practice but never attribute to natural, in-born talent: kissing, gardening, how to shot skulk, sudoku, cooking, typing, room-decorating and driving, and even test-taking. Like areas of study, or the arts, they just require some hands-on, down-home, old-time practice. God knows my actual aptitude in reasoning and analysis didnâ€™t change in between the two months I took the SATs, I just practiced how to take the damn thing.
