According to Bingham “aptitude is a condition or set of characteristics regarded as symptomatic of an individual’s ability to acquire with training some usually specified knowledge, skill or set of responses such as the ability to speak a language, to produce music, etc”.

10 Characteristics of aptitude It is symptomatic or indicative of one’s ability for a particular work or job. It connotes more than potential ability in performance. It is a present condition but with a forward reference. Aptitude is the result of the interaction of heredity and environment – An individual is born with certain potentialities and begins to learn immediately. Aptitude embraces any characteristic which predisposes to learning; including intelligence, personality, interest and special skills. Aptitude is simply a capacity to learn.

14 What is Interest? According to Guilford, “Interest is a generalized behavior tendency of an individual to be attracted to a certain class of incentives or activities that are vocational in nature and to those whose broad meanings transcend vocations”. According to Murphy “Interests are conditioned objects, characteristics or people in the environment”. Interest, in short, is a behavior orientation towards certain objects, activities or experience. It is an expression of our likes and dislikes or our attractions and aversions.

15 What are the characteristics of Interest? They are shaped by both heredity and environment. They are fairly stable traits of personality. Never become permanently fixed. Are sufficiently unique to warrant special consideration in the study of an individual or a group. Vary with age and differ among individuals. Gradually crystallize as the individual begins to discover himself and piles up rewarding experiences in a few fields.

To enable teachers, counselors and parents to know the kinds and intensity of the students interests and assist them to prepare their educational and vocational plans consistent with their interests.
