  • Id disagree with his hypothesis.

    The questionnaire is not evidence based. It's all good having a hypothetical score, but consider evidence. We all know people see themselves through rose tinted glasses and so asking people their own view on their grit will just be inflated by people's higher opinion of themselves that reality. What's that statistics that X% of drivers think they're better than average.
    .what's the scratch rate?
    What's the return to race rate?
    What's the give up cycling rate?

  • Yeah, I didn't think it was a great survey, TBH.
    And FWIW I came out below average on grit score - mainly because I'm a bit flighty when it comes to persuing new ideas, and I don't really like working hard if I can avoid it - which I'm better able to do as I get older!

  • Daniel Kahneman(sp?) wrote a book on this shit. So have probably loads of others. We are totally full of conscious and unconscious biases.
