AUDITORY ABILITIES

refers to the abilities to encode and discriminate different sounds or tones. These abilities, according to some theories of intelligence (such as the three-stratum model of intelligence) are distinguished from visual abilities.

AUDITORY ABILITIES: "A person's auditory abilities are high if he or she can encode and discriminate sounds better than the average person."
