The word caliber refers to the competence of a person. It derives its meaning from the ability of a person to do things that an otherwise normal human being will find it difficult or tough to accomplish. Thus, by ordinary usage of words, caliber is associated with people delivering high performance levels.

A person of high caliber generally is more intelligent, has high energy levels and has the willingness to perform and achieve. The effects of a high caliber person being present in any team are evident from the results that the team delivers. A high caliber person is keen on taking challenges that provide ample opportunities for exercising one's skill and abilities. He strides into an arduous task beaming with self confidence. On the contrary, caliber is seldom used in conjunction with people delivering low performances, even though the usage can be apt at many instances.

Hello, in general, the caliber is the inner diameter of the bore of the firearm. Depending on the type of weapon with a rifled or smoothbore, the caliber can be measured in different ways. In this area, I have good knowledge, as I recently passed Firearms training to start practicing sports shooting.
