Concept Application and Integration of Grit Scale Score

Reflect on any outcomes that highlight your motivation and persistence to achieve your goals.

Discuss your Grit Scale score. Do you consider yourself to be gritty? Persistent? Why or why not? Cite an example of a goal you sought to achieve and how your grittiness helped you achieve it, or, alternatively, not a goal you sought to achieve and how a lack of persistence caused you to fail. Consider the question we discussed in class:

  • Can citizens of these countries self-actualize?
  • How can an individual use their grit/persistence to self-actualize even in such dire circumstances?
  • Discuss how intrinsic or extrinsic motivation influences their actions.
