1. Potentially existing but not presently evident or realized.
2. Dormant or undeveloped but able to develop normally under suitable conditions; as, latent ability.
3. Present in the unconscious but not consciously expressed.
‘Latent’ can be rearranged to form the ‘Talent’. Now, many people have potential talent but they do not realize it as they may be busy in something else or may have never given that thing a shot. Therefore their talent can be thought of as ‘Latent’.
