According to psychologist Angela Duckworth and colleagues, "grit" is defined as "perseverance and passion for long-term goals".
What would be the closest term for "grit" in Chinese?
Google gives me "sand" and "gravel" as its meaning.
砂砾 (shālì) = gravel 沙子 (shāzi) = sand 粗砂石 (cū shā shí) = coarse sandstone
Thanks, Nate PS. I've also inquired Professor Duckworth and still waiting for her response.
