Mindsets are beliefs about you and your most basic qualities. Think about your intelligence, talents and personality. Are these qualities set in stone? Or are they things your can cultivate and develop throughout your life?
What kind of mindset do you have?
Fixed mindset students say (about effort):
'When I work hard at school it makes me feel like I'm not very smart."
Growth mindset students say (about effort):
"The harder you work at something, the better you'll be at it."
Fixed mindset students (after failure):
"I will spend less time on this subject from now on." "I will try not to take this subject ever again."
Growth mindset students (after failure):
"I will work harder in this class from now on."
