Fixed vs. Growth: The Two Basic Mindsets That Shape Our Lives

Fixed vs. Growth: The Two Basic Mindsets That Shape Our Lives | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
“If you imagine less, less will be what you undoubtedly deserve,” Debbie Millman counseled in one of the best commencement speeches ever given, urging: “Do what you love, and don’t stop until you get what you love. Work as hard as you can, imagine immensities…” Far from Pollyanna platitude, this advice actually reflects what modern psychology knows about how belief systems about our own abilities and potential fuel our behavior and predict our success. Much of that understanding stems from the work of Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck, synthesized in her remarkably insightful Mindset: The New Psychology of Success (public library) — an inquiry into the power of our beliefs, both conscious and unconscious, and how changing even the simplest of them can have profound impact on nearly every aspect of our lives.

One of the most basic beliefs we carry about ourselves, Dweck found in her research, has to do with how we view and inhabit what we consider to be our personality.

Stephanie Marie's comment, July 11, 11:45 AM
I love the idea of the growth mindset! Dweck's book has been on my reading list I just have gotten around to reading it! That being said, your question on our post was to about whether or not telling a student they are gifted could be damaging to them...I think it depends. If you tell a child they are gifted or smart and then do nothing to challenge them, I believe that can be damaging and that is what a fixed mindset does. However, by identifying a student as gifted, you draw attention to the fact that this student needs to be challenged and has a talent that needs to be developed. The idea that their talent/intelligence can grow and develop is a growth mindset. Another part of the growth/fixed mindset is being aware of how you praise that student. Saying, "Of course you got an A, Johnny - you're so smart!" does nothing to reinforce the time and effort Johnny put into his work and is an example of a fixed mindset. In a growth mindset, it is better to praise specifically and praise the process rather than the product. "Johnny, I really liked the introduction to your paper and how you were willing to edit it in multiple drafts," is specific and highlights the work Johnny put into it.
Brook Croat's comment, July 11, 4:00 PM
The topic of the growth vs. fixed mindset was first brought to my attention through a TED Talk last year, and it's still just as interesting as it was then! By far the scariest/most interesting part of this article was when they discussed the effects of the study with young children. Immediately seeing the negative consequences of promoting a fixed mindset is a wake-up call as to just how much of an effect we have on our students. I hope keep this topic in mind in the future and work hard to encourage a growth mindset with my students. Thanks for sharing!
Grace Briese's comment, July 12, 11:06 AM
Good point Stephanie. I was kind of making an assumption that once you tell a student that they are gifted, you are reinforcing the fixed mindset that they should be preforming at a certain level simply because they are gifted (not for effort). But you are right, reinforcing a gifted student's process and effort and encouraging that growth mindset can/should still be done once they are identified as gifted....
So much for me to still explore on this topic- I just bought the book myself. Thanks for the input!

In some instances, research illuminates a topic and changes our existing beliefs. For example, here’s a post that challenges the myth of preferred learning styles. Other times, you might hear about a study and say, “Well, of course that’s true!” This might be one of those moments.
Last year, Dr. Karlsson Wirebring and fellow researchers published a study that supports what many educators and parents have already suspected: students learn better when they figure things out on their own, as compared to being told what to do.
