Honestly I believe in skills over talent or luck. Nobody is born with talents, they build it over a period of time. Let me give you an example, when you're playing a game do you just try your luck or calculate all the possibilities and analyze the risk?

If you're a person who analyzes the risk and considers all probabilities, you'll love studying this subject and you'll love your job as an analyst.
