Discover Your Life Interests and Passion: A Psychologist Spills the Beans on Finding Your Interests and Unveiling Your Passion

March 20, 2024

Angela Duckworth explains how life interests are discovered through experimentation and not introspection in her book, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance.

“Interests are not discovered through introspection.

Instead, interests are triggered by interactions with the outside world.

The process of interest discovery can be messy, serendipitous, and inefficient. This is because you can’t really predict with certainty what will capture your attention and what won’t.

Without experimenting, you can’t figure out which interests will stick, and which won’t.”

Angela Duckworth, Author of Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance
