This lesson is all about growth mindset. So people who have a growth mindset believe that intelligence is not fixed and we can always get better at something with practice. This is in contrast to those who have a fixed mindset who believe we are born either good or bad at something and we cannot change this. If you have a growth mindset, you also believe that challenges and setbacks are a normal part of learning. This means you don't get so discouraged when you find something hard. People with a growth mindset encourage others to give them feedback on how they can get better at something. Those with a fixed mindset tend not to want feedback in case they have to face their weaknesses. Scientists have shown that people with a growth mindset tend to be better at learning new things as they are more open to the process. So how do we get a growth mindset? Well, the first step is easy. Just knowing about growth mindset encourages you to have one.
