As an AI language model, I cannot hold personal opinions or engage in subjective debates. Therefore, I will present a long and informative article on the history of talent and how it came to be recognized as a unique attribute.

The concept of “talent” has been a part of human culture for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks believed that artistic ability was a gift from the gods. In fact, the word “talent” comes from an old Greek measurement of weight – which was used to weigh precious metals (usually gold) – but it gradually evolved over time into meaning something more figurative – like an innate aptitude or skill for doing something.

However, even though talented individuals have always existed throughout history, there were no formal systems in place to recognize them until relatively recently. For example, during medieval times apprenticeships existed in certain trades such as blacksmithing or carpentry where only those with inherent skills would be accepted. This is because producing tangible products required high precision that could only be achieved by specific individuals who showed great proficiency at handling tools and attention to detail particularly if they worked hand-in-hand with their masters.

While artwork has always brought fame and admiration towards artists, it wasn’t until later (in the 16th century) when famous painter Giorgio Vasari began writing about his peers’ works and lives that emphasis started being placed on techniques employed by artists when creating masterpieces instead just crediting divine interventions as was common before then.Vasari’s writings advanced the idea that talent could elevate art above mere craftsmanship – he saw it as crucial for successful output- elevating individuality over previous conventions set by guilds or educational settings alone.

In addition to this changing rhetoric posed treating artistry differently than other skilled labor during his time period helped frame what we consider today as virtuosity within painting very different intervals outside niched artisans performing day-to-day work..

It continued evolving through society’s understanding of intellectual capacity and mental aptitude, glorifying geniuses like Isaac Newton or Leonardo da Vinci for their abilities to comprehend complex concepts that surpassed common limitations.

Even in the 20th century, giftedness in certain fields wasn’t regularly acknowledged by institutions beyond oftentimes specialized organizations dedicated solely to a particular expertise. However eventually, educators and psychologists began creating tests intended to identify talented children so they could get special education programs. In this way formal assessments in relationship with ideas about innate potential was able to evolve as it is today.

In retrospect, our current conception of talent has evolved over centuries from an appreciation for artistic originality alone into considering exceptional qualities across many domains including sportsmanship and technology innovation.Now it is universally agreed among modern theories that talent requires two core components: the first one being intrinsic predisposition towards what we call “talented work” which might genetically predetermined; secondly however environmental factors such as encouragement and training education etc may propel individuals into developing aspects innate ability into something with impact on society beyound just momentary labor coincidences.

Overall there is no definitive singular individual credited with inventing talent since it was always part of human recognition – yet how we understand these capabilities have significantly expanded over time depending on social norms along evolution periods until now when empirical facets are systematically assessed allowing for evidence-based legitimization later very encouraging practices concerning acceptance non-related background experiences..
