This is a graph taken from the article "Grit and Perseverance in Suicidal Behavior and Non-Suicidal Self-Injury" by Anestis and Selby. The chart is a visual aid in the main case study that I am using. In it the researchers pooled data from 604 undergraduate students who took psychology courses. These students were asked to complete an online questionnaire. They filled out answers to Duckworth's "Short Grit Scale" in addition to questions about their own personal history with suicidal behavior. The results showed that students who self-injured frequently also showed a higher sense of grit. This is what I will be arguing in my final paper.
