Chinese parents are paying for DNA tests for their infants and toddlers, convinced they can determine what talents they’ll develop later in life.
Companies charge hundreds of dollars to perform the saliva-swabbing tests, that will determine whether or not the child is talent in areas like mathematics, dancing, or painting. Parents are given test results two weeks later.
The test also determines a child’s general level of intelligence, emotional understanding and concentration, and whether or not they’ll be introverted or extroverted.
Was there something you excelled at as a kid that came out of the blue, with no training or practice?
