Frayer Method (Frayer, Frederick & Klaus Meier, 1969) From E.Boehm Perseverance Definition: A trait a person might possess. A person that demonstrates perseverance when he remains constant to some purpose or task over some extended period despite obstacles. Distinguishing between new and similar but different concept for which it might be mistaken: Perseverance differs from stubbornness. P=positive quality and goal is typically worthwhile. S=negative quality and goal is not worthwhile. Example: A person who graduates from college despite financial responsibilities that require her to work full-time while in college would be demonstrating perseverance. Non examples: Reading an interesting book that you thoroughly enjoy. Eating a dozen donuts because you are really hungry.
