I seem to be really good at debating. How can I use this "talent"?

I have a passion for debating. Whatever the topic is (excluding biology and related sciences, of which i'm 100% ignorant), I think I can "feel" when other people are afraid, have weak arguments, or are shocked by some obscure stats I pull from the top of my head. Being an analytic person, I seem to be able to use all this to my advantage and counter-attack with well-constructed arguments or a good sophisms, enough to win the discussion.
Question is: given that I am not a lawyer or a politician, but a computer scientist, how can I put this "talent" to good use?
