Kathmandu, 28th Dec: A human ability is a union of a native process (or processes) in humans and a content (or contents) inferred from relatively permanent changes in behaviour. Abilities are of two kinds: Cognitive and Psychomotor. When a child understands the meaning of a statement in acquiring language or comprehending a word, his understanding means a process or operation and also certain content i.e. words or their meaning.
A psycho motor ability, on the other hand, helps a human being to acquire specific skill for a specific work, e.g. manual dexterity needs acquisition of skill as well as well-guided arm-hand movement while manipulating an object. Persons high in this ability are able to perform any specific task involving manual dexterity.
