Infographic: Growth Mindset v. Fixed Mindset

I found this in a post by Jackie Gerstein: Growth Mindset: GoBrain and Making a Splash.


Growth Mindset v. Fixed Mindset
from GoBrain website by Carol Reiley
(visit the site to see the full-sized version)


Fixed Mindset
intelligence is static
leads to a desire to look smart and therefore a tendency to:
avoid challenges
give up easily
see effort as fruitless or worse
ignore useful negative feedback
feel threatened by success of others
may plateau early and achieve less than their full potential

Growth Mindset
intelligence can be developed
leads to a desire to learn and therefore a tendency to:
embrace challenges
persist in the face of setbacks
see effort as the path to mastery
learn from criticism
find lessons and inspiration in the success of others
reach ever-higher levels of achievement
