In Twilight, can Rosalie do anything special, like run really fast or read people's minds?

Edward is super fast and can read minds. Emmet is super strong.  Alice can see the future, and Jasper can control people's emotions. Can Rosalie do anything?

I don't want to give away in spoilers, but when a person becomes a vampire in the Twilight series, all aspects of their human selves are heightened and improved. For example, Jasper can now, as a vampire, control people's emotions because as a human he was very charismatic. In Rosalie's case, she was by far one of the most beautiful human women, and now as a vampire, she is even more exquisite.  She is certainly stronger and faster, but she does not have the same sort of super power as Edward, Emmett, Alice, and Jasper. Her super power is her super beauty.

Rosalie Cullen was saved by Carlisle Cullen when she was take to his home after being  left in the street by a man that she loved and hoped to marry, and  his drunken friends. Carlisle found her, and turned her into a vampire rather than see her die.  Carlisle brought Rosalie into the Cullen family in hopes that Edward would see her and would find love.   This type of pairing never happened for Rosalie and Edward.  Rosalie's “talent” was her “beauty and 'pig-headedness'” as Edward put it. “Rosalie’s true defining personal trait is her beauty.  Like Emmett’s strength–they’re both more intensely physical than intellectual, which makes them a perfect match.”  Even though Rosalie is very beautiful and Edward showed no desire for her, it would come in very handy as a hunter of men.

It's kinda strange isn't? Your power is, beauty?? Ofcourse in the real world beauty can be powerfulln it can open doors for persons. But this is fiction, it had been nice she had a real powerthing, i don't know if the beautypower make any difference to help the vampire-pack survive... They're all beautifull in the eye off the beholder, and since i've read the books and saw the v-pack such as models because bella saw them like that. I think the writer stephanie had to give it a little more thought bout it!!!

Aside from regular vampire powers like speed, extra ordinary strength, and acute sight she's a regular vampire without any skills. However Edward once said that Rosalie's gift was her beauty. Too bad Rosalie doesn't have a gift I can see her with something like being able to control human perspectives especially men haha.

As far as I know Rosalie does not have any special powers like with Alice or Bella,etc. although she does have extraordinary strength as well as super speed and super hearing.
