A reputed computer training institute wanted us to test students who applied for its courses. The institute offered a variety of courses and wanted us to help each student in selecting an appropriate course.
To develop a unique set of tests for this purpose we first drew upon our existing data base of the thousands of persons (not necessarily students) tested by us over the years. Without disclosing they were asked to rate the suitability of these persons for a variety of computer courses.
Among the profiles selected, there was one outstanding individual who was found to be suitable for ALL the courses offered by the institute! In fact, he had all the strengths needed to enter into any advanced graduate program in computers.
It is amazing how a person's potential can remain so tragically hidden, only to then wither away unknown and unexploited over time.
