Jargon makes resilience extremely context dependent. In Malika's blog post she discussed how resilience in the energy sector is oftentimes thought of as "robustness" which is simply not the exclusive flavor of resilience we're talking about. I get your point about saying should we really care about the definition, and you're right I think we spend too much time worrying about the definition but I think it's definition is similar to how some people define or think of God. Some people think of God of a dude in the sky with a beard, and other's take a more metaphorical, skeptical, or none of the above approach. Therefore, I think you're onto something when you're talking about people's past experiences and backgrounds shape how they define resilience.
