We watched a video which I have linked below.
Video One.(Growth Mindset by Carol Dweck - Animated book summary - Growth mindset and fixed mindset, 2016).
We spoke about whether we are a fixed or growth mindset.
The traits for a fixed mindset are as follows:
- Avoiding challenges
- Giving up easily
- Seeing effort as temporary
- Getting frustrated and ignoring feedback or criticism
- Feeling threatened by others success
- Embracing challenges
- Pushing through setback
- Believing in your effort is most important
- Using feedback and criticism as a way of improvement
- Inspired and learns from other success.
From looking at these traits I would say that when it comes to some things I can be a fixed mindset however in certain situations I can be a growth mindset it simply depends on the situation. I find myself to be very determined therefore being a growth mindset a key example is when it comes to university as I am always trying to do the best I can and I take feedback and criticism as a way for me to improve and do better. However on the other hand when I get into a rut and I doubt my own work I feel like I can be a very fixed mindset.
