ACUMEN:  Possessing a high level of acumen means someone has the ability to make good judgments and quick decisions due to their natural abilities and/or capacities.

A person’s acumen — or keenness and depth of perception or discernment — is directly related to his or her level of performance. The stronger a person’s acumen, the more aware that person is of their reality.

TTI Success Insights’ assessments measuring Acumen examine the dimensional balance of six areas as they pertain to internal and external factors:

• Understanding others
