Attributes show the strength of a pilot's “brain” power. This allows them to train skills at a faster pace. Your current attributes can be seen in the character sheet under the Attributes section. You can increase your attributes by using Implants.

Skill Attributes

Each skill has both a primary and secondary attribute. To view these attributes look under the Show Info for the skill and attributes tab. It will tell you both the primary and secondary skills.

The formula for the speed of skill training (points per minute) is:(primary attribute + secondary attribute/2)

Attributes don't contribute to how well the skill will be used. They only determine how fast you can train the skill(s) with your current set. There are 5 attributes that affect your learning speed. Intelligence, Memory, Charisma, Willpower, Perception. Some of these attribute are more useful for a specific career then others.
