Embrace Who You Were Made to Be

The Highlands Ability Battery is the gold standard of aptitude tests, providing a framework for understanding your natural abilities so that you can embrace your best career, ministry, and relational endeavors.


What is the Highlands Ability Battery?

The Highlands Ability Battery (HAB) is a human assessment tool that objectively measures your natural abilities by asking you to perform specific tasks or exercises. As part of the Highlands Whole Person Model, the HAB is the foundation and starting point to identify the career best suited for you.


The HAB was founded on the work of research scientist Johnson O’Connor, who devoted his life to the study of human engineering. Almost a century of research that began with Johnson O’Connor and continues through the Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation has established that every individual is born with a pattern of abilities unique to him or her.

Through a three-hour, self-paced online assessment, the HAB measures basic human abilities such as:

  • visual speed and accuracy
  • ability to work with numbers and designs
  • inductive reasoning
  • analytical reasoning
  • idea flow
  • verbal aptitude
  • structural visualization
  • musical aptitude
  • several applications of memory

After completing your HAB, you will receive a comprehensive report, which links to a database for certification, education, and career prospects.

The Highlands Ability Battery Assessment is a method, a model, and a process of self-discovery. The battery reveals how you problem solve, where you get your energy from, and how you connect with others, providing you with a framework for approaching relationships, educational studies, and career pursuits.

The HAB includes:

  • 45-minute pre-assessment consultation to discuss what you're seeking to discover and provide you with an orientation of the battery and what to expect from the results
  • Three-hour online assessment, which is divided into 18 timed work-sample segments, that can be completed in one sitting or spaced out according to your time availability
  • one-hour follow-up consultation to review your assessment results and set forth clear goals as well as action steps
  • Whole Person Model takes into consideration all aspects of your life so that you can pinpoint how your personal style and abilities influence your relationships and well as your professional and personal life pursuits.
  • The full report explains the battery results and gives you access to an information-rich database of educational and career matches that connect with your abilities.
  • 60-minute feedback session equipping you to use the results of your HAB

There were so many things I wanted to do with my life that I couldn't figure out how to settle on one thing. Through coaching sessions and the Highlands Battery Assessment, Lisa facilitated the process of identifying my goals, resulting in moving to  Colorado and living the life I longed for.
