gifted

If someone calls you gifted, smile. It means you're talented.

You might be gifted at dancing, or a gifted mathematician — you can also call your best friend a gifted actor, or feel envious that she's such a gifted French speaker. In any of these examples, it's as if nature or fate bestowed a gift on a lucky person. Gifted, in fact, comes from gift and its Old Norse root, gipt or gift, which means both "gift" and "good luck."
