List Rules Vote up the people whose talents you'd want to have as your own; vote down the people whose talents you'd be fine missing out on.

The world is full of talented people – people who've spent years honing their skills to be as close to perfection as possible. Wouldn't it be nice to just absorb some of those skills without having to put in all the work? If you had the chance, would you want to swim like Michael Phelps? Think like Batman? Fight like Bruce Lee?

We asked our audience which person's talents they'd like to absorb. Be sure to vote up the talents you wish you could suddenly absorb, and down vote the talents that you aren't interested in having in your wheelhouse.
