dc.description.abstractThe motivation behind this research was to examine the relationships between the psychological variables grit, stress mindset and decision making style. Measures used included the 12-item Grit Scale, Stress Mindset Measure-General and the Maximization Scale. Participation was voluntary and obtained from a convenience sample. The design was correlational and the responses were collected via an online survey. As hypothesized, a Pearson r Correlation revealed that high levels of grit were positively correlated with a satisficing style of decision making. A multiple regression analysis revealed that, as hypothesized stress mindset and maximization significantly predict grit. Existing research has shown the importance of these variables in terms of wellbeing and success. The main conclusions drawn from the results are that further research in this area would be of value.
