I'm in the process of filling in the "About me" section on another SE site. When I was reading/reviewing it before posting, I noticed a construct that I had used and that I'm not entirely sure is correct, but seems to me most appropriate in that context.
Here's a snippet of the sentence I had written, followed by my question and reasoning:
... But ultimately, I had to come back to the thing I was most good at ...
Is the use of "most good" ever correct?
I know most good is just a dumb way of saying best, but I don't feel like best is the best option in this context (not even the "most good" option). Using best here, at least to me, sounds like I'm the best at the thing, implying that I'm better than other people are at that thing (for clarity's sake, that thing is programming.)
What I meant by writing that sentence is that out of all the things I did, programming was the one I was the most good at. I think using best would lose the intended meaning of the sentence. So that's why I chose most good instead of best, and now I just want to know whether or not it's correct to use (grammatically or otherwise).
In school when we were learning English, most good was often used as a joke to point out someone's bad English. Google search was pretty much useless as usual, the closest to a "definition" was an urban-dictionary entry, which funnily enough gave the same definition that I used here. A search on the ELU site didn't yield much either, so I'd appreciate any help.
