Grit and sense of coherence as predictors of well-being

Bhavana Arya, Divya Sarah Lal


There are many people in every walk of life that have different levels of abilities to reach their goals. Few might rely
on their talents and skills to work and few might use their meticulous tactics and ideas that lead them to their goals
but there are also people who are gritty. Such people persevere through difficulty and do not give in till the end.
These individuals are considered to have a strong sense of meaning which in turn leads to their positive wellbeing.
Sense of coherence and grit have been identified as important variables contributing to the well-being of an
individual. In the current study, the role of grit in predicting well-being is investigated. The role of sense of
coherence as a mediator between grit and well-being is also analysed. The Short Grit Scale (Duckworth et al., 2007)
Sense of Coherence Scale (Antonovsky, 1987) and Scales of Psychological Well-being (Ryff, 1995) were used to
assess the variables in a sample of 250 medical and engineering students. Results indicated a positive correlation
between grit and wellbeing and confirmed the mediating role of SOC.
