Grit (personality trait) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Grit (personality trait)

Grit in psychology is a positive, non-cognitive trait based on an individual's passion for a particular long-term goal or endstate coupled with a powerful motivation to achieve their respective objective. This perseverance of effort promotes the overcoming of obstacles or challenges that lie within a gritty individual's path to accomplishment and serves as a driving force in achievement realization.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, January 22, 2013 7:53 AM

A very intimate analysis of human learning as humans understand it to be.  Includes several maps highlighting various theories.  This one will take some time to digest, but for the school psychologist, it will be worth the time.  

Les Howard's curator insight, January 22, 2013 10:26 AM

Agree with Mary, very comprehensive analysis.

Doing Math Can Literally Hurt Your Brain [STUDY]

Doing Math Can Literally Hurt Your Brain [STUDY] | college and career ready | Scoop.it

Warning: Do not look at the image above if you have math anxiety. A new study from the University of Chicago found that, for people who get anxious at the idea of doing mathematics, just preparing to do a math problem can trigger activity in a part of your brain that registers physical pain.

Researchers studied 14 subjects who suffered from anxiety about doing math — but not generalized anxiety — in an fMRI machine that imaged their brain activity. When the subjects were asked to prepare to do a math problem, they showed significant activity in the posterior insula, an area deep in the brain that is associated with responding to threats and experiencing pain.
