Aptitude: Mental, Perceptual, Sensory/Physical
This is a highly generalized section in which the narrative deliberately focuses on talents, without emphasis or even mention of where or how these talents should or might be applied. It lets individuals look into a mirror and see his/her own talents-and then decide for themselves where they fit and function the best. It is another context in which to see if priorities are mental, sensory or physical.
This section emphasizes linkage between mind, senses and body. Factors in this aptitude section identify how the person is wired for mental/sensory/physical activity. In many activities, there is very close linkage between mental, sensory, and physical activities. Where that occurs, it is usually the subconscious mind that triggers, controls, and activates sensory/physical activity.
