Are Aptitudes different than Skills?

Yes. Aptitude is the potential to acquire a skill. Skills are developed from practice and experience. Aptitudes reflect how much practice and experience it will take to develop those skills. In other words, aptitudes reflect how quickly and easily you can master and utilize particular skills. They also provide a gauge on the ultimate level of proficiency with that skill you are likely to achieve. If you know where your aptitudes lay, you can select career paths that require learning the types of skills that come more easily.
