Angela Duckworth

Angela Duckworth has done more than anyone else to popularize the term grit. While teaching low-income children, Duckworth became convinced that something besides IQ was a key factor in predicting success. What was this something else? Along with Martin Seligman, Duckworth, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, has conducted studies to find that crucial ingredient. As a result of her studies, she has been called in by West Point to predict which cadets have what it takes to survive the tough atmosphere at the academy.
