I am trying to investigate the relationship between being interested in something, enough to pursue it, and being good at it.
It is kind of like the same principle as liking a dress because you know this particular style will look good on you.
Are we ever so fiercely interested in something we are terrible at? Does being good at something make you like it more? Does liking something make you good at it?
True, you dont always know whether or not you are good at something unless you try it, but lets say you have tried it and you are terrible at it. Will you still love it for bigger reasons than yourself?
I say that these two things are inextricably tied to one another. But what of the poor fool who does something they are terrible at relative to other people in the field but still holds on to some idealisic love?
