Kamlesh Singh, Mohita Junnarkar and Shambhovi Mitra
The primary focus of the study is to present the psychometric properties of the Hindi translated version of the Grit-Scale, Connor Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC) and PERMA scale. The study was conducted in North India, where more than one-third of the population speaks Hindi. A total of 474 Hindi speaking participants (females = 202) in the age range of 17 to 60 years (M = 25.69; SD = 8.10) volunteered for the study. A booklet containing demographic sheet and selected scales in Hindi language was used for data collection. The Confirmatory Factor Analysis results indicated that all three scales possessed acceptable model fit indices. The correlational analysis indicated good convergent validity between all the three constructs. It was found that females possessed higher scores on well-being, grit (interest) and resilience. The results of the current study align with the earlier research studies. Keywords: Grit, Resilience, Well-being, Hindi, Translation, Validation.
