Abstract

Grit (i.e., passion and perseverance for long-term goals) has been associated with positive educational, work, and well-being outcomes. However, limited research has been done to examine social and contextual antecedents of grit especially in non-Western settings. The aim of the current study was to assess the associations of relatedness to parents, teachers, and friends with grit dimensions (perseverance of effort and consistency of interests) and overall grit in 606 Filipino high school students. The results showed that sense of relatedness to teachers was linked to higher perseverance, consistency, and overall grit while relatedness to parents was associated with greater consistency and overall grit even after controlling for demographic variables. The theoretical and practical implications are discussed. Copyright © 2016 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
