What is the character for the word resistance. I'm looking for the term in the sense of "I feel resistance towards taking on this challenge".

In that context, you really do not have many choices. It would be either 「[抵抗]{ていこう}」 or 「抵抗[感]{かん}」.

"I feel resistance towards taking on this challenge."

could be said as:

「この[挑戦]{ちょうせん}を[受]{う}けるのは抵抗がある。」

「この挑戦を受けることには抵抗感がある。」

「この挑戦を受けることには抵抗感を感じる。」

Is there a single (or just a couple characters) for just "resistance" that would make sense? –  Kyle Brandt Aug 25 at 14:01

@KyleBrandt the word he's giving you -- teikou ([抵抗]{ていこう}) fits exactly that. –  virmaior Aug 25 at 14:06
