What would it be?

I would pick animal empathy so I wouldn't feel like such a butt whenever I have to betray my kitty to the vet.

Search, its not on the list but being able to find missing things would be nice!

I would go for heal.
Broken bone, grab the first aid and good to go.
Internal bleeding, grab the first aid kit and you be jumping in no time.

Definitly the way to go!

Does "listen/spot" comes with a sidedish of "paying attention", I think it would do wonders for my grades.

Edit: On second thought, that would be covered by Concentration/Dicipline

For my character: Heal. Save a friend from dying and you won’t have to persuade them. They listen.
For myself: Heal. Save some lives and git monay~

Pursuade is easily the most applicable to the real world unless you are a specialist in a particular field.

you can ace any interview, win any arguement with your spouse, reach the highest levels of society, own anything you want, pick any partner you want.

I mean heal is good but how many people break bones or suffer internal bleeding? if you're a surgeon or other medical practitioner then yea. but youd probably end up being killed by people because you would basically be performing miracles and there are plenty of wackos out there.

listen/spot, is good if you want only meagre skills and be as close to a normal person as possible without only a slight advantage. but if you could just convince the lecturer that you deserve to get full marks, and they give you full marks... *shrugg* who wins in the end?

Picked perform in the poll because, heck, that could scoot over into a lot.

But I'd be picking lore if it were available with no hesitation.
Because understanding all languages would be amazing!

Animal Empathy, an incredible skill to have as a pet owner.

Persuade is a close second though.
