Keywords:Grit, Life Satisfaction, Subjective Happiness, Burnout, Young adults
AbstractGrit, a non-cognitive predictor of academic achievement and success in life gained impetus in the last decade. Numerous studies show that grit has many positive consequences. But there is a lack of research on grit in India, which is a non-WEIRD country with a collectivistic culture. This study examined the relationship of Grit with Life Satisfaction, Subjective Happiness, and Burnout in young adults. The researcher hypothesized that Grit will be positively related to Life Satisfaction and Subjective Happiness and negatively related to Burnout, and will have a significant impact on each. 149 (M= 49; F=98; NB=2) young adults between the ages of 18 and 25 participated. Correlation analysis and regression analysis was conducted on the gathered data. The statistical analysis of the data revealed that grit was positively correlated with Life Satisfaction and Subjective Happiness, and it was negatively correlated with burnout. It was also found to have a significant impact on the variables.
