• The ability to enjoy the process of learning and not just the grade;
• The capacity to stick to the learning goal in the face of difficult subject matter, setbacks,
and times of not understanding the material;
• The ability to study in the face of feeling tired or having attractive social options;
• The willingness to ask for help when necessary yet not constantly seeking help because
of general feelings of incompetence.
