Talent is an ability born with a Never Fairy, described as a calling in life, that they are drawn to and do best.[1] There are as many different talents as there are jobs to be done,[2] and can be to watch over nature, bring seasons to Mainland, give support to other fairies, etc.

Overview

Announcing / Discovering

In Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg (2005), it expound that most fairies already know their talent and announces it, along their name, at the Arrival Day's ceremony, however, some fairies need help and can take days to discover their talent.

In The Realm of the Never Fairies (2006), it told that after a new talent is announced a painting is made with an image that symbolizes it, being placed at the Corridor of Talents.

Tinker-bell-disneyscreencaps

Finding the talent as seen in the first movie.

In Tinker Bell, it showed that objects and elements react to the fairy's talent, helping the fairy discovering their talent at the arrival day's ceremony. The objects and elements used were: flower, water, wind, hammer, leaf, light, egg, muffin, snowflake and paint-brush.

In The World of Fairies (2009), it specifies that when fairies first arrive they already have their talent.

Impact

Performing their talents are fairies greatest joy[2] and has major impact in their activities and tastes. Fairies of a same talent work, play, eat together, and their talent also influences what they eat, dress, where they live and how is decorated.[2]

In all medias, however, it was shown that talents do not limit and define fairies. Sharing a talent gives similar traits, yet they remain "different from one another" and although their fellow talent members are "usually, but not always, their best friends,"[1] fairies of all talents can get along and befriend each other.

Changing

After discovering their talent, fairies can find themselves belonging to a more specific area of it, such as Iris discovering she is more to noting about plants than raising them, or Zarina from a Dust-keeper to a Pixie-dust-alchemist.

Although with the use of Pixie Dust and objects fairies can perform tasks of different talents, only being exposed to colored Pixie Dust, via Pixie Dust Alchemy-Talent, can change (or revert back) a fairy talent completely, also inflicting on the fairy's personality.
