Say something did 100 damage to you. After you take the perk it would only do 90 damage to you. And even if that's not exactly right, it's still a very good perk and I'm pretty sure everyone would take it regardless of character build.

It's weird. I used to be Protestant but after 3 hours of playing Fallout 3 I now drink goat blood and nun urine martinis.-TerminusEST

Damage Resistance (and Rad Resistance) are based on a percentage decrease. Both of those stats cap-out at 85% to ensure that you can still take damage and rad damage regardless of equipment or build.

Toughness will grant a passive bonus of 10% that will always be active. You still cannot, however, exceed the 85% cap.

In other words: If you use Heavy Armor, this perk may be wasted by end game.
