What makes you unique and an asset?

What makes you unique?


As I searched on line on Google I kept getting this question as a job interview question on several sites.  How many of us can accurately answer this question about ourselves? I thought.  How can we examine ourselves to find the answer to this question.   What makes you unique in reality is what makes you different from the rest such as personality skill set, confidence, things that set you apart from others. Things that make you one of a kind and valuable to yourself and others.  According to article in psychology today, based on a study with twins showed that genes matter.  In fact, they concluded that the environment did little to increase intelligence but rather that genes help the environment.  According to same article, another study determined that DNA alone does not determine the person but rather the environment  and experiences one has determines the person, especially " the development of trait of characteristics". According to study by David Moore.    Parenting matters " parenting behaviors  are determined by genes".   "Nature and Nurture are complementary not at odds to make the individual who they are.  This article is by Scott Barry Kaufman.
What makes you unique is a combination of genes and the environment  you grow in that make you who you are.  Your personality is what makes unique and different?  Be who you are regardless.
