Job requirements

Maybe it is an upcoming fashion in a current economy situation but recently I've seen following skills required for a position of Senior Technical Lead:

"Concentration required daily using sight, hearing and touch to operate a computer, respond to problems ….”

So I better should start training hearing, I thought, update my glasses prescription and practice touching (hopefully just for a coding purposes). At first it seemed a disappointing omission that they didn’t mention anything about requirements for a incumbent's butt, but I misunderestimated them:

“Sits at a desk for long period of time to perform the duties of the job."

Brilliant! The only question is what category those skills belong to? They not quite technical and not exactly soft…
