GrowthMindset

By a "growth mindset", we mean the belief that you can improve your intelligence and skills through training. This can be contrasted with a "fixed mindset", which views intelligence and skills as mainly innate and due to "talents".

There is some evidence that students who are trained to have a "growth mindset" perform better.

See this video on YouTube from psychology professor Carol Dweck, discussing the evidence she has found for this.
