Carol Dweck, a psychology professor at Stanford University who coined the term “growth mindset” in her 2007 book “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success.” Dweck identifies two mindsets: the “fixed mindset” and the “growth mindset.” Students who have a fixed mindset believe their intelligence, basic abilities, and talent are unchangeable. In contrast, people who have a growth mindset think they can develop their talents and abilities through effort, good teaching, and persistence. These people can conceivably learn anything with proper focus.
