The will to survive is an attitude. It is a deep commitment to survival. I suggest, while it cannot be learned, it can be reinforced by being prepared, with knowledge, and by developing a healthy survival psychology. Remember to downplay your losses while building your successes up. Confront your difficulties head on and with determination to accomplish your task, no matter what. Keep your faith in your higher power, and keep your mind active. Stay off of your self-pity pot and do get into the "poor me" attitude.

If you have the will to survive, you will survive and not just live. You will be able to return to society knowing you, and you alone, keep yourself alive. You will know that you kept yourself alive where many others would have simply given up..and died. You will be proud of the fact you didn't just live, or even die, you were truly a survivor

Survival is the art of remaining alive in and escaping from a hostile environment without full facilities.

Survival mustn't be confused with camping in the wilderness, in winter on a mountain armed with a tent, sleeping bag, cooking equipment and food - this is not survival. Even extreme backpackers , people who compete in events such as mountain marathons, who plan everything they have to carry, down to the last gramme, will still be warm at night and have enough food to last their expedition - this is not survival.

In these examples, the people in question have planned for their trips, have warm clothing, adequate cover from the elements, enough food etc, also they are most likely well practised at what they do and probably do not go alone. Another person, wearing normal day-to-day clothes, with no camping experience or specialised equipment placed in a similar environment as the above examples, would struggle to cope - this IS survival.

Who is most likely to survive?

What kind of survival are we talking about?
If it is about our species, then we do not have much choice since we are just by-products of experiments which Nature keeps on doing
On individual level it is the Divine grace, on which all survivals depend upon. (That does not mean that will power as well as availability of resources are not important)
