Persistence and competition: Are they mutually inclusive?
What is the correlation between competitiveness and persistence? Our society often attributes competitiveness to success. We may attribute the achievements of successful businesspeople or athletes to their competitiveness. It would seem to be logical that part of the reason for success comes from the persistence to not give up, which may in turn drive competitiveness. But to assume persistence and competitiveness are mutually inclusive and that only competitive people are persistent could be a mistake. Is it possible that a person can be persistent without being competitive? This science project will provide you with insight to this question.
