Excerpt from this answer:
From the script, lines that didn't make it into the film:
MORPHEUS: Let me tell you why you are here. You are here because you have the gift.
NEO: What gift?
MORPHEUS: I've watched you, Neo. You do not use a computer like a tool. You use it like it was part of yourself. What you can do inside a computer is not normal. I know. I've seen it. What you do is magic.
NEO: It's not magic.
MORPHEUS: But it is, Neo. It is. How else would you describe what has been happening to you?
This seems to imply that Morpheus was looking exclusively at hackers for the next One. Was this the case? Do we have any canon evidence that if Neo's "magic abilities" were in art, sports, or car sales that he'd still gain the attention of Morpheus anyway? It seems that whatever computer knowledge Neo would need to fulfill the prophecy could be taught after he took the red pill along with the rest of his lessons. So was Morpheus being biased or not?
