Since the upsurge of interest in mental toughness research that was sparked by a seminal paper in 2002 (Jones, Hanton, & Connaughton), researchers have learned a great deal about different aspects of mental toughness. However, despite all this research attention, there are lots of questions and issues that remain unanswered (or are controversial) including the stability of mental toughness, mental versus physical toughness, the relationship between mental toughness and mental health, different types of mental toughness, and the measurement and definition of mental toughness. This chapter will briefly discuss the current state of mental toughness literature, but as the title of the text implies, the focus will be on discussing the unknown and potential areas for future research.
