The invention comprises of a structural algorithm, processes, apparatuses and systems for evaluating, matching and fostering individuals' behavioral capabilities to the requirements for successful human performance in any role and situation. The invention uses a new algorithm to construct a profile of required ability levels underlying the performance of recognized successful individuals in specific situations. Other individuals are then evaluated only in terms of discrepancies between required ability levels and the levels indicated by their performance of indicators of attainment in each of the required dimensions of ability. Required abilities are selected for each comparison in seven linked types of behavior, each with its own method of measurement. As the measurement methods of the invention are used only to construct comparison gauges of a specific requirement and an individual attainment, there is no need for inferring absolute value or generalizable meaning to any ability measurement. The invention employs a novel algorithm and method to construct multidimensional gauges of the necessary and sufficient behavioral abilities, novel processes to identify individual's attained levels of the required abilities and to match individual's abilities with role-situation requirements, novel processes to evaluate or select intervention strategies for furthering individual's attainment of required abilities and a novel algorithm to identify the level of stress induced by computer presentations. Applications of the invention are anticipated in human resource management, training, education, counseling, therapy, medical, self-help and other settings.
