I have become interested in the concept of resilience, defined as follows, depening on context:
  1. The ability to recover quickly from illness, change, or misfortune; buoyancy.
  2. The property of a material that enables it to resume its original shape or position after being bent, stretched, or compressed; elasticity.

This is a ‘positive’ skill/quality to look at in relation to the topic of cultural adaptation. I also came accross a model about how to approch cross-cultural interviews, using the ‘resiliency wheel’..more can be found by cliching here:The Resiliency Wheel article
