Having a growth mindset means understanding that intelligence can be developed.


Growth mindset is the belief that one’s abilities can grow with effort. Students with a growth mindset believe that they can develop their skills through effort, practice, and perseverance. These students embrace challenges, see mistakes as opportunities to learn, and persist in the face of setbacks. By contrast, students with a fixed mindset believe that their own intelligence and talent are innate traits that don’t change. These students typically worry about not looking smart, get upset by mistakes, and give up sooner on tough tasks.
