The importance of abilities surpassed the importance of aptitude by 0,15 points. However, just as personal attributes and skills come hand in hand, the same is true for abilities and aptitude. This was confirmed in a study by Johnson, Lenartowicz and Apud, (2006).
4.2.1. Abilities
As already discussed, the foreign language competence is not that important, but other skills are crucial for the good quality of life and work efficiency. Generally, the abilities were divided mainly into two categories – Self-management skills and the social skills.
4.2.1.1. Self-management skills
Patrick’s answer covers both theskills dimension and the personal attributes dimension. “It depends what kind of business they have. You have freelancers, remote workers, and entrepreneurs. Freelancers need their designer’s skills, writing skills, etc. same with remote workers and entrepreneurs. But there is not universal skill which would make u money online. Then you need to have skills to be o.k. to be alone sometimes, to have the skills to cope with the everyday challenges, be flexible, skill how to look for the information, you need the skills of communication and socializing. Skill how to cope with unknown. Be able to improvise. Traveling skills.”
Benno’s answer was short but more specific. “Good work ethics and discipline, skills with computer and a lot of knowledge in IT.”
John’s answer expands on Benno’s answer. “They should have good organizational skills and planning skills. If they don’t organize and plan their working day they will end up slacking all day long and nothing will get done.”
These skills were mainly oriented towards business, Alexander saw planning and organizing from traveling perspective. “If you don’t plan your trip, you can get into troubles which could have been avoided. Like finding accommodation on the spot and then not having place to sleep.”
