    So does this mean, "You are gifted"?
    Or didn't I listen correctly?

    Remember: Sentences begin with a capital letter and end with a punctuation mark.

    I believe it's what you said.
    However, what makes more sense in your opinion?
    1. Did the person receive a gift?
    2. Was the person talented?

    As said, I believe it's talented.

    Cheers!
