Recreational talents are valuable to others only for recreation; they don't accomplish any real results. You can't build a better engine by playing the piano.Smurf said:How are Piano and Writing more recreational and less professional than Logic-Math?
But what I also meant was that piano and writing are done more often for recreation. It is pleasurable to play the piano or write. Sure, it can be pleasurable to do logic and math as well, but they are often more "active" and there is frequently the other interest of accomplishing some goal, making logic-math often not a purely recreational activity.
