Mind Opener: Get An Aptitude

Abstract:
Koreans have an aptitude for micromanipulation in the laboratory, a procedure essential in nanotechnology and stem cell research. A report spoke of Korean "tweezer dexterity", a skill that comes handy indeed in biotechnology and nano particle research. The 'aptitude' is being attributed to the Korean tradition of eating meals with tapering steel chopsticks unlike other similar cultures where wood is still being used for the purpose. So, is aptitude intrinsic or acquired?
