Listen to Dr. Carol Dweck speaks about these mindsets and why we need to "legitimize" the fixed mindset in order to continue growing
A "Fixed Mindset" means that you believe that intelligence and talent are fixed. A "Growth Mindset" means that you believe that your intelligence and talent can be developed over time. In this great interview, Dr. Carol Dweck calls out that declaration that most of us have "if a Growth Mindset is good, then that's what I must be what I am!" But in reality, we all display Fixed Mindsets in certain situations. The important part is to know how to see it and what to do about it.
