Abstract

Abstract This paper presents a review of relatively recent North American literature concerning human strengths. It briefly covers basic strength definitions, measurement and prediction of strengths, and the role of strengths in employee screening and job matching procedures. In addition to discussing variations in strength with body posture and duration of exertion, a brief reflection on torque exertion capabilities of individuals with common hand tools is also included.
