Carol Dweck † Chapter 1 THE MINDSETS As a young researcher, just starting out, something happened that changed my life I was obsessed with understanding how people cope with failures, and I decided to study it by watching how students grapple with hard problems So I brought children one at a time to a room in their school, made them comfortable, and then gave them a series of puzzles to solve The first ones were fairly easy, but the next ones were hard As the students grunted, perspired, and toiled, I watched their strategies and probed what they were thinking and feeling I expected differences among children in how they coped with the difficulty, but I saw something I never expected Confronted with the hard puzzles, one ten year old boy pulled up his chair, rubbed his hands together, smacked his lips, and cried out, I love a challenge Another, sweating away on these puzzles, looked up with a pleased expression and said with authority, You know, I was hoping this would be informative Whats wrong with them I wondered I always thought you coped with failure or you didnt cope with failure I never thought anyone loved failure Were these alien children or were they on to something Everyone has a role model, someone who pointed the way at a critical moment in their lives These children were my role models They obviously knew something I didnt and I was determined to figure it outto understand the kind of mindset that could turn a failure into a gift What did they know They knew that human qualities, such as intellectual skills, could be cultivated through effort And thats what they were doinggetting smarter Not only werent they discouraged by failure, they didnt even think they were failing They thought they were learning I, on the other hand, thought human qualities were carved in stone You were smart or you werent, and failure meant you werent It was that simple If you could arrange successes and avoid failures at all costs , you could stay smart Struggles, mistakes, perseverance were just not part of this picture Whether human qualities are things that can be cultivated or things that are carved in stone is an old issue What these beliefs mean for you is a new one What are the consequences of thinking that your intelligence or personality is something you can develop, as opposed to something that is a fixed, deep seated trait Lets first look in on the age old, fiercely waged debate about human nature and then return to the question of what these beliefs mean for you WHY DO PEOPLE DIFFER Since the dawn of time, people have thought differently, acted differently, and fared differently from each other It was guaranteed that someone would ask the question of why people differedwhy some people are smarter or moraland whether there was something that made them permanently different Experts lined up on both sides Some claimed that there was a strong physical basis for these differences, making them unavoidable and unalterable Through the ages, these alleged physical differences have included bumps on the skull phrenology , the size and shape of the skull craniology , and, today, genes Others pointed to the strong differences in peoples backgrounds, experiences, training, or ways of learning It may surprise you to know that a big champion of this view was Alfred Binet, the inventor of the IQ test Wasnt the IQ test meant to summarize childrens unchangeable intelligence In fact, no Binet, a Frenchman working in Paris in the early twentieth century, designed this test to identify children who were not profiting from the Paris public schools, so that new educational programs could be designed to get them back on track Without denying individual differences in childrens intellects, he believed that education and practice could bring about fundamental changes in intelligence Here is a quote from one of his major books, Modern Ideas About Children, in which he summarizes his work with hundreds of children with learning difficulties A few modern philosophers assert that an individuals intelligence is a fixed quantity, a quantity which cannot be increased We must protest and react against this brutal pessimism With practice, training, and above all, method, we manage to increase our attention, our memory, our judgment and literally to become intelligent than we were before Whos right Today most experts agree that its not eitheror Its not nature or nurture, genes or environment From conception on, theres a constant give and take between the two In fact, as Gilbert Gottlieb, an eminent neuroscientist, put it, not only do genes and environment cooperate as we develop, but genes require input from the environment to work properly At the same time, scientists are learning that people have capacity for lifelong learning and brain development than they ever thought Of course, each person has a unique genetic endowment People may start with different temperaments and different aptitudes, but it is clear that experience, training, and personal effort take them the rest of the way Robert Sternberg, the present day guru of intelligence, writes that the major factor in whether people achieve expertise is not some fixed prior ability, but purposeful engagement Or, as his forerunner Binet recognized, its not always the people who start out the smartest who end up the smartest WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN FOR YOU THE TWO MINDSETS Its one thing to have pundits spouting their opinions about scientific issues Its another thing to understand how these views apply to you For twenty years, my research has shown that the view you adopt for yourself profoundly affects the way you lead your life It can determine whether you become the person you want to be and whether you accomplish the things you value How does this happen How can a simple belief have the power to transform your psychology and, as a result, your life Believing that your qualities are carved in stonethe fixed mindsetcreates an urgency to prove yourself over and over If you have only a certain amount of intelligence, a certain personality, and a certain moral characterwell, then youd better prove that you have a healthy dose of them It simply wouldnt do to look or feel deficient in these most basic characteristics Some of us are trained in this mindset from an early age Even as a child, I was focused on being smart, but the fixed mindset was really stamped in by Mrs Wilson, my sixth grade teacher Unlike Alfred Binet, she believed that peoples IQ scores told the whole story of who they were We were seated around the room in IQ order, and only the highest IQ students could be trusted to carry the flag, clap the erasers, or take a note to the principal Aside from the daily stomachaches she provoked with her judgmental stance, she was creating a mindset in which everyone in the class had one consuming goallook smart, dont look dumb Who cared about or enjoyed learning when our whole being was at stake every time she gave us a test or called on us in class Ive seen so many people with this one consuming goal of proving themselvesin the classroom, 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 doesnt our society value intelligence, personality, and character Isnt it normal to want these traits Yes, but Theres another mindset in which these traits are not simply a hand youre dealt and have to live with, always trying to convince yourself and others that you have a royal flush when youre secretly worried its a pair of tens In this mindset, the hand youre dealt is just the starting point for development 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 wayin their initial talents and aptitudes, interests, or temperamentseveryone can change and grow through application and experience Do people with this mindset believe that anyone can be anything, that anyone with proper motivation or education can become Einstein or Beethoven No, but they believe that a persons true potential is unknown and unknowable that its impossible to foresee what can be accomplished with years of passion, toil, and training Did you know that Darwin and Tolstoy were considered ordinary children That Ben Hogan, one of the greatest golfers of all time, was completely uncoordinated and graceless as a child That the photographer Cindy Sherman, who has been on virtually every list of the most important artists of the twentieth century, failed her first photography course That Geraldine Page, one of our greatest actresses, was advised to give it up for lack of talent You can see how the belief that cherished qualities can be developed creates a passion for learning Why waste time proving over and over how great you are, when you could be getting better Why hide deficiencies instead of overcoming them Why look for friends or partners who will just shore up your self esteem instead of ones who will also challenge you to grow And why seek out the tried and true, instead of experiences that will stretch you The passion for stretching yourself and sticking to it, even or especially when its not going well, is the hallmark of the growth mindset This is the mindset that allows people to thrive during some of the most challenging times in their lives A VIEW FROM THE TWO MINDSETS To give you a better sense of how the two mindsets work, imagineas vividly as you canthat you are a young adult having a really bad day One day, you go to a class that is really important to you and that you like a lot The professor returns the midterm papers to the class You got a C Youre very disappointed That evening on the way back to your home, you find that youve gotten a parking ticket Being really frustrated, you call your best friend to share your experience but are sort of brushed off What would you think What would you feel What would you do When I asked people with the fixed mindset, this is what they said Id feel like a reject Im a total failure Im an idiot Im a loser Id feel worthless and dumbeveryones better than me Im slime In other words, theyd see what happened as a direct measure of their competence and worth This is what theyd think about their lives My life is pitiful I have no life Somebody upstairs doesnt like me The world is out to get me Someone is out to destroy me Nobody loves me, everybody hates me Life is unfair and all efforts are useless Life stinks Im stupid Nothing good ever happens to me Im the most unlucky person on this earth Excuse me, was there death and destruction, or just a grade, a ticket, and a bad phone call Are these just people with low self esteem Or card carrying pessimists No When they arent coping with failure, they feel just as worthy and optimisticand bright and attractiveas people with the growth mindset So how would they cope I wouldnt bother to put so much time and effort into doing well in anything In other words, dont let anyone measure you again Do nothing Stay in bed Get drunk Eat Yell at someone if I get a chance to Eat chocolate Listen to music and pout Go into my closet and sit there Pick a fight with somebody Cry Break something What is there to do What is there to do You know, when I wrote the vignette, I intentionally made the grade a C , not an F It was a midterm rather than a final It was a parking ticket, not a car wreck They were sort of brushed off, not rejected outright Nothing catastrophic or irreversible happened Yet from this raw material the fixed mindset created the feeling of utter failure and paralysis When I gave people with the growth mindset the same vignette, heres what they said Theyd think I need to try harder in class, be careful when parking the car, and wonder if my friend had a bad day The C would tell me that Id have to work a lot harder in the class, but I have the rest of the semester to pull up my grade There were many, many like this, but I think you get the idea Now, how would they cope Directly Id start thinking about studying harder or studying in a different way for my next test in that class, Id pay the ticket, and Id work things out with my best friend the next time we speak Id look at what was wrong on my exam, resolve to do better, pay my parking ticket, and call my friend to tell her I was upset the day before Work hard on my next paper, speak to the teacher, be careful where I park or contest the ticket, and find out whats wrong with my friend You dont have to have one mindset or the other to be upset Who wouldnt be Things like a poor grade or a rebuff from a friend or loved onethese are not fun events No one was smacking their lips with relish Yet those people with the growth mindset were not labeling themselves and throwing up their hands Even though they felt distressed, they were ready to take the risks, confront the challenges, and keep working at them SO, WHATS NEW Is this such a novel idea We have lots of sayings that stress the importance of risk and the power of persistence, such as Nothing ventured, nothing gained and If at first you dont succeed, try, try again or Rome wasnt built in a day By the way, I was delighted to learn that the Italians have the same expression What is truly amazing is that people with the fixed mindset would not agree For them, its Nothing ventured, nothing lost If at first you dont succeed, you probably dont have the ability If Rome wasnt built in a day, maybe it wasnt meant to be In other words, risk and effort are two things that might reveal your inadequacies and show that you were not up to the task In fact, its startling to see the degree to which people with the fixed mindset do not believe in effort Ce texte fait r f rence l dition Reli.A good book is one whose advice you believe A great book is one whose advice you follow This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas
