A website by Carol Dweck, fully discussing Mindest:
"In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. They’re wrong.
In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities."
This site reviews what Mindset is, how it affects success, why people differ and what the implications are for individuals. Many links to the left lead to wonderful, related resources and articles.
