For all those who are still trying to figure out what Kim Kardashian's real talent is, they might want to tune into her 60 Minutes interview, where the social media icon breaks down exactly why she deserves a seat at the "influencers" table. 

In a brief snippet from Kim's pre-robbery, 60 Minutes conversation, interviewer Bill Whitaker asks the reality star the age-old question: "What's your talent?" Not missing a beat, the social media star insists she does offer a certain skill set. "It is a talent to have a brand that’s really successful off of getting people to like you for being you," the reality replies. "So I have to think that involves some type of talent." 

During the interview, the Kimoji founder also reportedly credits her fame and success to social media. "I totally attribute my career to social media," she admits. And Kim also notes that there are some disadvantages of sharing your life 24/7 that only few can handle. "There are pitfalls—lack of privacy, loss off privacy. That's not for everyone. For me, I can handle it," she adds. 

Some trolls may still have a problem with Kim's talent, considering everyone has access to social media and the Internet nowadays. But although Kim's ability to share her life via multiple social media platforms seems like a luxury given to most people, she's done an exceptionally good job on capitalizing on it. In fact, her social presence has helped her become one of the world's top-earning celebrities, as well as a Forbes Magazine cover girl.

But in light of the star's recent gunpoint robbery in Paris, Kim has dialed back from her social media presence. Since the attack earlier in Oct. 2016, Kim has fallen silent on all of her social media accounts while she continues to cope with the traumatic experience. And rumor has it, Kim might be in search of a new talent following the incident—one that doesn't involved her putting her every move on blast. 

Kim Kardashian's 60 Minutes interview airs tonight, Oct. 23, on CBS at 7p.m. ET.
