					?Aptitude and Attitude

For quite a long time now a conflict has been brewing between aptitude and attitude.
Which one of the two is more important? Although it has been seen that attitude (and
other similar traits) play a large part in the success of a person, the fact remains that it
is difficult to measure and analyse that part of the personality. On the other hand, the
aptitude of a person can be measured quite easily and accurately.

Aptitude is defined as a natural ability, tendency, talent or capability to learn,
understand or acquire a particular skill. An aptitude test is any examination that
attempts to determine and measure a person's ability to acquire, through future
training, some specific set of skills (intellectual, motor and so on). The tests assume
that people differ in their special abilities and these differences can be useful in
predicting future achievements. The various traits that are measured include abstract
reasoning, general mental ability, integrity, numerical reasoning and verbal reasoning.
