Fixed vs growth mindsets
Joyce Park stashed this in Science
Very nice graphical representation of the deep differences between believing that intelligence is innate versus developed.
I wonder it can ever be beneficial to have a fixed mindset.
This infographic seems slanted toward suggesting the growth mindset is best.
Having read "Mindset," I'm pretty sure there aren't any times where a fixed mindset is beneficial.
Nice graphic that breaks down the essential differences between the two mindsets. I actually thought of a career when it would be beneficial to have some of the aspects of the fixed one: totalitarian despot/dictator. It seems one would be more successful in that role by ignoring negative feedback, being threatened by the success of others and avoiding challenges (by eliminating them)?! ;-)
Chris, good point.
Rich, there are some non-dictator politicians in America 2012 who have benefitted from a fixed mindset.
We could argue that they'd be better off with a growth mindset, but we'll never know.
Seems like a great demonstration of how emotional intelligence is the biggest determinate of success.. not intellectual intelligence.
Mary, that's right.
