What We Actually Need Is a Sorting Hat

You will never be a professional violinist if your fingers can’t do this one thing. And you’ll never be a professional ballerina if your body isn’t proportioned in this one way. And I wish there were tests like this for every vocation so when you were a kid you could be sorted out painlessly because wouldn’t that just make figuring out what you wanted to be when you grow up that much easier? (My revelation that I would never be an astronaut or a spy didn’t come until … last year.)
