Middle English abilite, from Anglo-French, from Latin habilitat-, habilitas, from habilis apt, skillful


b : competence in doing : skill


An aptitude is an innate, acquired or learned or developed component of a competency (the others being knowledge, understanding and attitude) to do a certain kind of work at a certain level. Aptitudes may be physical or mental. The innate nature of aptitude is in contrast to achievement, which represents knowledge or ability that is gained.[1]
