Is blind resilience better than calculated submission?
When is it okay to admit you've been beaten?

I usually quit, but it has little to do with calculated submission; I just don't feel trying at all sometimes.
I'm thinking of it as a fight between two people. So, sometimes calculated submission is better, but rarely, since people don't usually tackle things they don't think they can handle to begin with.0

I say it's damn important to keep your perspective very wide in general! I tend not to stop until I've reached my intended goal, in most cases! BUT, it's just ignorant to think that way exclusively! You have to be able to know when you are in over your head! I don't necessarily consider that "beaten", quite the contrary. Beaten would be if you did not accept that when it was appropriate to do so!
Example: You might be an excellent cardiothoracic surgeon, but when things are not working properly, and you've tried over and over again, you NEED to know when to call for help or someone to replace you. Like when you're standing in an inch of blood that covers the entire OR floor or something! Not a good time to worry about pride/ego!
It is incredibly difficult and subjective to know when to draw such a line, and that is the crucial part of the question (s), which you've posed!
Ultimately, any virtue or quality that starts with the word "blind" can never be more intelligent than anything that starts with he word calculated! Shaking-off the need to submit leads to resilience I would say!0
