The French term "débrouillard" translates to "resourceful" in English, yet its meaning runs much deeper. According to the Dictionnaire de l'Académie française, the official French language dictionary, débrouillard refers to someone skilled at getting out of trouble (translated: Habile à se tirer d'affaire).
A mid-20th century Larousse dictionary (pictured above) echoes this definition, while its 2023 edition expands on it, describing a débrouillard as someone "Who knows how to manage, get out of trouble, who gets everything he wants." (translated: Qui sait se débrouiller, se tirer d'embarras, qui obtient tout ce qu'il veut).
