The Highlands Ability Battery

The Highlands Ability Battery (THAB) is considered the Gold Standard among tools assessing human abilities. From the research lab of Johnson O’Connor in the GE lab, it is a three hour objective inquiry into the ability patterns of individuals. It consists of 19 work samples. Each worksample is timed to measure of the speed with which the individual is able to do a series of similar tasks. Shown together on a bar chart, an individual can see clusters of work abilities. The more one understands the patterns, a person can be guided into more productive work that has a better match.

What will I get from taking the Highlands Ability Battery?

  • An understanding of my natural talents
  • Learning where I am most likely to be happy and successful
  • Using my true strengths more effectively and more consistently
  • Choosing the best option from a group of education/career/job/business choices
  • Finding a suitable educational program for college, grad school or returning to college at any age

“Taking advantage of The Highlands Program definitely gave me the focus I had been seeking for a long time. Thank goodness for the way it was designed to give such specific feedback on a person’s gifts and styles of work.”
