Dexterity

“Dexterity” is a word in front of which many other words may be placed: manual dexterity, mental dexterity, linguistic dexterity, sporting dexterity, musical dexterity, …

For me, the resulting compound seems to encapsulate what it means to be skilled and talented at the art it describes. Useful.

Possibly inspired by a morning spent reading articles about Ricky Jay.
