Fixed vs. Growth Mindset
Fixed vs. Growth MindsetStudents learn the difference between a fixed and growth mindset to help them succeed in school and beyond.

What is the Definition of a Growth Mindset?

A growth mindset is “the understanding that abilities and understanding can be developed” (Mindset Works, n.d.). Those with a growth mindset believe that they can get smarter, more intelligent, and more talented through putting in time and effort.

What is a Fixed Mindset?

On the flipside, a fixed mindset is one that assumes abilities and understanding are relatively fixed. Those with a fixed mindset may not believe that intelligence can be enhanced, or that you either “have it or you don’t” when it comes to abilities and talents.
