True Grit - Association for Psychological Science - 55 views

    • Michaella Thornton
       
      I think it's fascinating that the authors use this "metaphor of achievement" in their article. Many cultural artifacts support this idea of grit, and how hard work and persistence can often help learners achieve their long-term goals.
  • Thus, the growing experimental literature on strategies that facilitate regulation of attention, emotion, and behavior in the presence of immediate temptations, could be relevant to grit and its cultivation.
