“You can change your mindset” – Carol S. Dweck – Mindset, The New Psychology of Success
In her highly acclaimed and recommended book Mindset , Carol S. Dweck lays out four foundational statements to gauge whether you have a fixed-mindset or a growth mindset.
Here are the statements ( Answer T or F to each one):
- Your intelligence is something very basic about you that you can’t change very much.
- You can learn new things, but you can’t really change how intelligent you are,
- No matter how much intelligence you have, you can always change it quite a bit.
- You can always substantially change how intelligent you are.
Statements 1 and 2 are fixed-mindset statements. Statements 3 and 4 reflect the growth mindset. “Which did you agree with more? You can be a mixture, but most people lean toward one or the other,” states Dweck.
