The Highlands Ability Battery Assessment Tool

People take the Highlands Ability Battery (HAB) for many reasons. Whether you are deciding on a college major, a career change, or what to do in retirement, you’ll find that the results of your HAB will apply to wherever you are in life.

  • You are stuck in your career. You need a jump start.
  • You know you have potential. It’s time to stop wasting your talent.
  • You are about to embark on your second act. What’s next?


The Highlands Ability Battery is a state of the art assessment tool that objectively measures your innate abilities. Abilities define what you do quickly and easily, and they affect the ways you most instinctively learn, communicate, lead, make decisions and solve problems, work with objects and use your mental and creative talents. It also provides insight into optimal work and educational environments for people.

While you can learn skills to support these talents, your natural abilities are unaffected by education or experience. Natural abilities fully develop in each of us by age fourteen. They do not deteriorate with neglect, nor does practice sharpen them. They are not indicators of intelligence nor are they in any way judgmental. There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ or ‘good’ or ‘bad’ profile. It is the overall pattern of your abilities that is important.

Knowing which abilities are strong and which are weaker provides a powerful tool to help you be more productive and less stressed.
