The skills of a person are the set of capacities with which they are equipped to do something correctly and easily. The word ability comes from the Latin word habilitatis, which refers to being skillful, that is, being able to perform an action satisfactorily.

For example: a person who can speak fluently in front of a large audience.

Skills are, then, those characteristics that a person possesses when executing an act or making the decision to exercise their will for the benefit of an objective. 

The abilities have the power to be developed, although there are also theories that place them in the range of the innate, that is, that they are specific to the individual and come with their birth.

For example: a boy who can play the piano from the age of two, and shows a remarkable precocity for music.

1. Skill types

There is a categorization of skills depending on their gender and their impact on the life of the individual.

They are:

  • Social skills. They are those that are related to community life and the relationship and contact between people. Subjects with social skills tend to function efficiently in groups, easily managing the tensions and conflicts that may arise. For example: a man who is an excellent host and makes all the guests at his parties feel pleased.
  • Personal skills. They are those that refer to the things that most intimately define an individual, also called “basic skills”. In general, they are common to most human beings. For example: a girl who acquires the ability to communicate her thoughts with words, that is, who develops her linguistic ability.
  • Physical skills. They are those that are related to the body and its performance in various tasks. They are associated with coordination, strength or the ability to perform bodily tasks with great productivity. For example: a sportsman who is trained and is very good at fencing.
  • Job skills. They are highly desired in companies, since they are related to the organization of time, leadership and making correct decisions so that a corporation or business can be successful and maintain good profitability and growth over time. For example: a boss who is considered a born leader and the collaborators follow his actions and his advice because he is very assertive, and his business strategies have given good results.
