After my wolf-spotting weekend in Yellowstone Park, I pondered the following question. Do wolves have gumption or Gumption?
The answer is Yes and No to both.
Traditional gumption is defined as:
- Sound practical judgment;
- Fortitude and determination.
Gumption (capital G, italicized Gump) is defined as:
- Mindset – Your thinking;
- Moxie – Your acting (or actions or getting things done);
- Graciousness – You interacting with others.
So wolves are mostly Yes on numbers 2 & 3 for both traditional gumption and Gumption.
But they are a No for number 1 on both accounts.
Let me explain.
