growth mindset

“In one world, effort is a bad thing. It, like failure, means you’re not smart or talented. If you were, you wouldn’t need effort. In the other world, effort is what makes you smart or talented.” –Carol Dweck

What if your true learning potential was unknown, even unknowable, at best? What if it were impossible to foresee what you could accomplish with a few years of passion, toil, and training? According to Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck, this isn’t some hypothetical situation, dependent on any manner of factors from genes to environment. It’s a mindset. And it’s one you can cultivate at any point in life.

A “growth mindset,” as Dweck calls it, is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a tendency to believe that you can grow. In her book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, she explains that while a “fixed mindset” assumes that our character, intelligence, and creative ability are static givens which we can’t change in any meaningful way, a growth mindset thrives on challenge and sees failure “not as evidence of unintelligence but as a heartening springboard for growth and for stretching our existing abilities.”

The consequences of believing that intelligence and personality can be developed rather than being immutably engrained traits, Dweck found in her two decades of research with both children and adults, are remarkable. She writes:

“Believing that your qualities are carved in stone creates an urgency to prove yourself over and over. If you have only a certain amount of intelligence, a certain personality, and a certain moral character, well then you’d better prove that you have a healthy dose of them. It simply wouldn’t do to look or feel deficient in these most basic characteristics.”

The fixed mindset can negatively impact all aspects of your life, Dweck says.

“I’ve seen so many people with this one consuming goal of proving themselves in [a learning setting], in their careers, and in their relationships. Every situation calls for a confirmation of their intelligence, personality, or character. Every situation is evaluated: Will I succeed or fail? Will I look smart or dumb? Will I be accepted or rejected? Will I feel like a winner or a loser?”

But when you start viewing things as mutable, the situation gives way to the bigger picture.

“This growth mindset is based on the belief that your basic qualities are things you can cultivate through your efforts. Although people may differ in every which way in their initial talents and aptitudes, interests, or temperaments, everyone can change and grow through application and experience.”

This is important because it can actually change what you strive for and what you see as success. By changing the definition, significance, and impact of failure, you change the deepest meaning of effort.

In this mindset, the hand you’re dealt is just the starting point for development. So how does this apply to learning and what can we do to help instill this attitude in our students?

How Can a Growth Mindset Help You Learn?

In a study of hundreds of students, mostly adolescents, Dweck and her colleagues found something startling: students with a fixed mindset will reject learning if it means not failing.

Students were given fairly challenging problems from a nonverbal IQ test, then praised for their performance. Some students were told, “Wow, you got [X many] right. That’s a really good score. You must be smart at this,” while others were told, “Wow, you got [X many] right. That’s a really good score. You must have worked really hard.” In other words, some were praised for ability and others for effort.

Dweck writes: “The ability praise pushed students right into the fixed mindset, and they showed all the signs of it, too: When we gave them a choice, they rejected a challenging new task that they could learn from. They didn’t want to do anything that could expose their flaws and call into question their talent.”

On the other hand, when students were praised for effort, 90 percent of them wanted the challenging new task that they could learn from.

Even more alarming, when Dweck and her colleagues gave the students a subsequent set of harder problems, on which the students didn’t do so well, the ability-praised kids thought they weren’t so smart or gifted after all.

“If success had meant they were intelligent, then less-than-success meant they were deficient.”

For the effort-praised kids, the difficulty was simply an indication that they had to put in more effort, not a sign of failure or a reflection of their poor intellect.

The most unsettling finding came after the IQ questions were completed, when the researchers asked the kids to write private letters to their peers relaying the experience. Students were asked to disclose their scores as well. One byproduct of the fixed mindset turned out to be dishonesty: Forty percent of the ability-praised kids lied about their scores, inflating them to look more successful.

“In the fixed mindset, imperfections are shameful, especially if you’re talented, so they lied them away. What’s so alarming is that we took ordinary children and made them into liars, simply by telling them they were smart.”

Perhaps Dweck’s most telling research explores how these mindsets are formed, and how early on in life. In one seminal study, Dweck and her colleagues offered four-year-olds a choice: They could either redo an easy jigsaw puzzle or try a harder one. Children who exhibited a fixed mentality stayed on the safe side, choosing the easier puzzles that would affirm their existing ability. Children with a growth mentality thought it an odd choice to begin with, perplexed why anyone would want to do the same puzzle over and over if they weren’t learning anything new. In other words, the fixed-mindset kids wanted to make sure they succeeded in order to seem smart, whereas the growth-mindset ones wanted to stretch themselves, for their definition of success was about becoming smarter.

Things got even more interesting when Dweck brought people into the Columbia University’s brain-wave lab to study how their brains behaved as they answered difficult questions and received feedback. What she found was that those with a fixed mindset were only interested in hearing feedback that reflected directly on their present ability, but tuned out information that could help them learn and improve. They even showed no interest in hearing the right answer when they had gotten a question wrong, because they had already filed it away in the failure category. Those with a growth mindset, on the other hand, were keenly attentive to information that could help them expand their existing knowledge and skill, regardless of whether they’d gotten the question right or wrong. In other words, their priority was learning, not the binary trap of success and failure.

These findings are especially important to formal education and instruction, as they shed light on how we, as a culture, understand learning ability.

“When you enter a mindset, you enter a new world. In one world, effort is a bad thing. It, like failure, means you’re not smart or talented. If you were, you wouldn’t need effort. In the other world, effort is what makes you smart or talented.”

What’s so valuable about the latter world is that it’s marked by a passion for learning rather than a hunger for approval. People with a growth mindset have a voracious appetite for learning, constantly seeking out the kind of input that they can metabolise into learning and constructive action. And this is extremely significant news for students and teachers.

“Not only are people with this mindset not discouraged by failure, but they don’t actually see themselves as failing in those situations–they see themselves as learning.”

Could that concept be any more powerful and inspiring?

Dweck’s latest research involves larger, more rigorous field trials that provide some of the first evidence that the social psychology strategy can be effective when implemented in institutions on a wide scale. Promising results from one famous experiment – an eight-session workshop in 91 seventh graders in a New York City school – led Dweck and Lisa Blackwell to start up Mindset Works, a company that offers a computer-based program called Brainology. Her current program, the Stanford Project for Education Research That Scales (PERTS), collaborates with schools in testing various experimental psychology strategies for shifting the ways students think about their education, so as to motivate them to work hard. PERTS plans to release an open set of growth-mindset professional development materials, starting with math teachers next year.

But you can start developing your own mindset–and those of your students–right now. Here’s our list of recommended practices.

25 Ways to Develop a Growth Mindset

1. Acknowledge and embrace imperfections.

Hiding from your weaknesses means you’ll never overcome them.

2. View challenges as opportunities.

Having a growth mindset means relishing opportunities for self-improvement. Learn more about how to fail well.

3. Try different learning tactics.

There’s no one-size-fits-all model for learning. What works for one person may not work for you. Learn about learning strategies.

4. Follow the research on brain plasticity.

The brain isn’t fixed; the mind shouldn’t be either.

5. Replace the word “failing” with the word “learning.”

When you make a mistake or fall short of a goal, you haven’t failed; you’ve learned.

6. Stop seeking approval.

When you prioritise approval over learning, you sacrifice your own potential for growth.

7. Value the process over the end result.

Intelligent people enjoy the learning process, and don’t mind when it continues beyond an expected time frame.

8. Cultivate a sense of purpose.

Dweck’s research also showed that students with a growth mindset had a greater sense of purpose. Keep the big picture in mind.

9. Celebrate growth with others.

If you truly appreciate growth, you’ll want to share your progress with others.

10. Emphasise growth over speed.

Learning fast isn’t the same as learning well, and learning well sometimes requires allowing time for mistakes.

11. Reward actions, not traits.

Tell students when they’re doing something smart, not just being smart.

12. Redefine “genius.”

The myth’s been busted: genius requires hard work, not talent alone.

13. Portray criticism as positive.

You don’t have to used that hackneyed term, “constructive criticism,” but you do have to believe in the concept.

14. Dissassociate improvement from failure.

Stop assuming that “room for improvement” translates into failure.

15. Provide regular opportunities for reflection.

Let students reflect on their learning at least once a day.

16. Place effort before talent.

Hard work should always be rewarded before inherent skill.

17. Highlight the relationship between learning and “brain training.”

The brain is like a muscle that needs to be worked out, just like the body.

18. Cultivate grit.

Students with that extra bit of determination will be more likely to seek approval from themselves rather than others.

19. Abandon the image.

“Naturally smart” sounds just about as believable as “spontaneous generation.” You won’t achieve the image if you’re not ready for the work.

20. Use the word “yet.”

Dweck says “not yet” has become one of her favourite phrases. Whenever you see students struggling with a task, just tell them they haven’t mastered it yet.

21. Learn from other people’s mistakes.

It’s not always wise to compare yourself to others, but it is important to realise that humans share the same weaknesses.

22. Make a new goal for every goal accomplished.

You’ll never be done learning. Just because your midterm exam is over doesn’t mean you should stop being interested in a subject. Growth-minded people know how to constantly create new goals to keep themselves stimulated.

23. Take risks in the company of others.

Stop trying to save face all the time and just let yourself goof up now and then. It will make it easier to take risks in the future.

24. Think realistically about time and effort.

It takes time to learn. Don’t expect to master every topic under the sun in one sitting.

25. Take ownership over your attitude.

Once you develop a growth mindset, own it. Acknowledge yourself as someone who possesses a growth mentality and be proud to let it guide you throughout your educational career.

    • Anna says:

      Hello Saga,

      This reading was extremelyinformative, it really opened my eyes to the human learning process. I consider myself having a growth mindset. I believe that it’s vital in ones life to always keep learning and growing.

      Anna

    • In today”s society we are each a process learner and we preceive situations usually with a common sense approach ;however using the brain with past learning expreiences gives us the opportunity to establish a broad scale.This article from you is gratifying to know and appreciate the same applies to yourself.

    • Abu says:

      I agree, this article helped me learn a lot about myself and how I perceive learning. This will have a very strong impact on how I teach my own kids. Though I applaud their efforts, I tend to put more emphases on the results more then the process, I can see now how that can stagnate a childs ability to learn.

    • Zayvon says:

      Hey saga loved the article. This really helps me to identify my weeknesses more. Now im more aware of where i need to focus more. Im even more confident now than i was before about my future. And i have a mindaet to learn.

    • Jessica olison says:

      Hello Saga Thanks so much for this article. It really gives me life and the full aspect on what it is to learn. It really help me to understand learning in a much better way thanks again.

  2. bob says:

    i love it, it really helped me to get a growth mindset and made me also forget, and lose my loved ones so i hate it.

    • Reginald McLaurin-Bey says:

      You know Bob, you say you hate it, but what I hear is, that you are getting out of your comfort zone. No one wants to do that, but soon, this will be your new comfort zone. That is worth loving.

    • Abu says:

      bob I don’t understand what you mean by lose your love ones, are you refferring to the sacrifice you’ll have to make, people you would have to cut off to focus, is that what you hate about it? not sure exactly can you clarify?

  5. Barnie Bassey says:

    It’s painful to write a comment on mobile, but this article totally worth it. Great effort, you must have worked hard on this!

  6. Rasheed tucker says:

    this has been very helpful in putting things like “the process of education” in perspective. These days it is not hard to see that people have ben taught what to think and not how to think. To be effective in this world you will need the ability to distinguish reality from fantasy; opportunity in adversity, grit from stuborn adhearence to old ways, and the ingredient we call effort and hard work. Thanks for your contribution.

  7. Useful info! thanks for sharing

  8. Thank you so much for sharing this great post.Very inspiring and helpful too.Hope you continue to share more of your ideas.

  9. An excellent overview but it would have been nice to have more actionable points. “Abandon the image”? “Cultivate grit?” How exactly does one do this?

    Much of this comes down to self-talk and affirmations, which I would recommend to anyone interested in improving their inner dialogue.

    • Saga Briggs says:

      Thanks for your feedback, Etienne. This article is meant to highlight the variety of strategies that can be used to develop a growth mindset, but you’re correct that it would be worth examining each point in depth. We’ll keep your comment in mind for future posts. Thank you for reading.

  32. Heather says:

    I have a 5-year-old who absolutely has a fixed mindset. In the jigsaw puzzle example, I definitely recognized him in the group that wanted to do the same puzzle over and over. Not because he loves it, but because he doesn’t want to do something difficult and fail. I feel like I’ve always praised effort and hard work! How can I get him to be more open to growth?

    • Saga Briggs says:

      Hi Heather, thanks for your comment! I certainly recommend finding some more ideas in Carol Dweck’s work. When it comes to children, she advises parents and teachers to emphasise “process” over achievement: “Parents and teachers can engender a growth mind-set in children by praising them for their persistence or strategies (rather than for their intelligence), by telling success stories that emphasise hard work and love of learning, and by teaching them about the brain as a learning machine.” I’d also add that, for a five year old trying to solve a new puzzle, there’s no such thing as “failure”; just learning!

  33. zara says:

    This information is really amazing to me,because I would be speaking to young teenagers graduating from high school about this.

  34. Joy says:

      Hi Anna, no problem as long as you give credit to InformEd or Open Colleges and link to our blog. Cheers.

  49. A very well written article Saga. I found the quote at first paragraph is so interesting, effort means we are not smart and talented. But it’s a different story in other world. Currenty I am doing effort aftering something but after nearly a two years the expected results don’t come. May be I am not talented for this !

    One of the best articles I have come across.

  55. Nasir Sayed says:

    Truly enriching… ” Acknowledge and embrace imperfections” is really the key word I take forward for continuous improvement. Generally , in life we tend too leave aside the imperfect side to strengthen more on our winning traits. The imperfect side can lead to an imbalance in the long term

  56. Brenda Williams says:

    That was a very interesting article a great way to help you with the way you say things and how you put things in together to help you think about what you do and say about things loved it.

  57. Tina Allen says:

    I loved this article. The “not yet” concept is something I have been telling people for years. Not just students, or even children, it works with anyone who hasn’t quite reached their goal “yet”. We just have to keep going until we get there. And as my dad always said when asked, ” Are we there yet?” “We are closer than we started, we will get there eventually if we keep on going.”

    • Saga Briggs says:

      Thank you for your comment and thank you for reading, Tina!

    • D. McNeil says:

      This article “not yet” do make a person continue to strive for perfection and want to continue to press on. Because like you said earlier keep on going, you will eventually reach the finish line.

  58. ruby says:

    this is very helpfull for me thanks alot saga

  59. jabari manning says:

    Very enlightening

  60. Pam says:

    Saga, for me this article was like none other, I’ve always thought i was a growth mindset person but now I’m pondering which one am I? This article has inspired me to put in more effort into my learning skills. I am a mother and grandmother, your information is going to help me effect three generations in my family for that i thank you and look forward to more from you. Also thank you Open College for providing Saga with a platform to reach as many people that she has.

  61. Marshall Hankamer says:

    It makes perfect since to me the logic behind growth mindset. As well as how a simple word like yet, predetermins the mind frame you end up with. The fixedmindset is a shallow mindset the youth should be thought that instead of tested. To broaden there outlook and not short stop there capabilities.

    • Mildred Thomas says:

      Hi Sage I am new at this, Growth Mindset, I just got into this Early Childhood Education. So I know I have to learn about my self before I can work with others. Thank You

    The growth mindset is great for neurotypicals. But if you work somewhere that pushes the growth mindset and you happen to have ASD, then you’re going to have a very hard time.

  69. Jonathon Hernandez says:

    I see this article as a great tool for any person. This can be utilized at a younger age to Foster growth. You can also revisit it at an older age if you are looking for motivation to better yourself. These are very familiar points I share with my team on a regular basis, I look forward to sharing this them.

  71. Heidi Wood says:

    Wow! This made me open my eyes. I always am very hard on myself, and get so mad when I don’t know something. Taking on line classes is a big step for me, and I have been scared since I signed up. The “Not yet” is my favorite. Its not that I don’t know it, or I don’t understand it, its just I don’t know/understand it yet. Thank you for this.

  87. Brittany m says:

    I’ve enjoyed this reading. It inspired me to do more no matter what happens because its good to fail, to give you the momentum to keep trying. When I read it was like writing a book about myself in school and how I have a different learning style and always seemed to fail. Teachers could not help, me because of the way I lean. To tell the truth I was/ still somewhat am still the kid that gets embarrass because I fail at something but, I had someone in my life that help me get past that thought to just do my best, Because in the long run I was someone amazing because what I could do and he couldn’t. He was / still is my inspiration to strive for more and this article reminds me of him and what he always use to say to me. So thank you!!!!

    I have lived by the growth. Learning much of my life. However I had never really heard “when you meet one goal make a new one…” and though this is a step I often work by. I like putting it into a concrete step.

    I have lived and learned all my life. To be successful is to not have the mindset that everything is hard and you cannot succeed. But having the growth mindset is also challenging because you may score low and say you scored high just to impress your integrity. Its best to be truthful and live and learn.
