Sapphique

Con

I accept this "debate".

Talent: a special natural ability or aptitude [1]

One can have a talent for drawing, or singing, or mathematics, etc. Being able to overcome fear doesn't indicate talent. It can show either a) courage, if the person genuinely surmounts their fear for some noble prupose, or b) cowardice, if they face up to their fear out of the fear of being labeled a coward.
