In addition to enhancing cognitive and physical performance, an emerging body of research focuses on noncognitive factors in human performance. Prior studies of human performance consistently suggest that cognitive factors (intelligence, learning, and specific cognitive abilities) account for about 25% of variation in measured performance. This chapter examines three streams of research focused on noncognitive amplifiers of human performance: grit and hardiness, core character strengths, and resilience. Research suggests that systematic efforts to train and develop these factors may represent a powerful approach to both optimizing human performance and improving emotional adjustment, especially in highly demanding and dangerous work contexts.
