Natural talents and aptitudes applies to those things which all humans, men and women are born with. It refers to the talents and interests that are inherent and gender specific. Plato cites that the differences between men and women are not created but rather innate, though he specifically speaks to women being inherently "weaker than men" in all areas; physically, emotionally, and intellectually.
