I’m going to tell you how student learn these mindsets. In the 90s parents thought the most important thing that you child should have was self-esteem. But were they messed up is that you cant just hand your kids self-esteem. They took a poll among parents and found that 85% of parents thought that it was necessary to “praise” their children’s abilities to boost confidence. Now were going to talk about growth mindset. These students believe that intelligence is something that can be gained through education and effort. I wish in high school that I would of taken it more serious because now I could have had a growth mindset witch would of helped me out a lot in college. Those students have growth mindsets. They believe that you can gain intelligence through learning. Those with a growth mindset had a very straightforward idea of effort. The idea that the harder you work the greater the outcome is and I think that’s true. When these students had a set back in school they simply just study more or differently next time. That was my biggest set back in high school. Many bright students find grade school fairly easy and get right through it. But later on in life like in college they struggle. They don’t want to put the time into something and feel dumb when they get a bad grade on it. That’s bad because you should never feel dumb about something that you tried your hardest to complete. I hope that this information was helpful
Growth mindset and the fixed mindset: The two focal points of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success written by Carol Dweck. Pushing yourself further and further so that you can strengthen your intelligence, versus believing that the knowledge you know and have cannot be brought to a higher level. Even though the book was a difficult read, it really opens the mind to the different views on life, and the many ways that people go about their lives. How the fixed mindset may bring someone to success at first but later in their life lead them to a crisis. Or how the growth mindset may be difficult to grasp and achieve, but it will enact success in the future. The book advises ways to go from having the fixed mindset to the growth mindset, from saying things such as, “Yet those people with the growth mindset were not labeling themselves… Even though
By reading the book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success people are able to determine if they are fixed-mind set or growth mind set. There are many people across the world who are fixed-mind set and believe that their abilities and intelligence cannot change. They dwell on the problems at hand and fail to recognize alternative ways to solve them. This group tends to have low self-esteem so they will prove themselves to others so they can feel superior academically or skilled related. If they fail at their task, they become more concerned with other’s thoughts, which diverges them from the actual objective. On the other hand, growth mind set is completely different from fixed-mind set. Growth mind set is someone who accepts the problem and thinks of a positive or useful way to fix the issue. This person believes that their strengths and weakness can grow with time and practice. These two mind sets help scientists explain why people act differently when faced with the same difficult situation.
A child in his growing period learns to make certain sets of assumptions or notations from the events happening in his growth environment. These sets of assumptions or notations develops into ideas the child uses in his growth period and they are called mindsets. Carol Dweck categorizes these mindsets into two categories called Growth Mindset and Fixed Mindset. A Person who restricts his basic abilities and talents to a set of fixed traits is set to have a Fixed mindset. The ideas of such a person revolves around this mindset. The goals of such a person are selfish or self-centered. However, the person with a growth mindset has a complete different ideology. A growth mindset person has an accepting attitude and is always willing to learn something
After watching the two videos in class about growth and fixed mindsets I have found out the differences between the two different mindsets. The two different mindsets are growth mindset and fixed mindset. To have a growth mindset you are not afraid to push yourself. If you have a fixed mindset you tend to hide from challenging yourself and you accept the outcome even if it means failure. People with growth mindsets tend to grow while people with fixed mindsets are fixed in the position that they’re in and they are not going to go anywhere because they are afraid to challenge themselves.
To whomever may be reading this, I have personal story to tell you about my growth mindset. Up until the ending of my sophomore year my mindset wasn't a growth mindset, I happened to be accustomed to a fixed mindset. I used to be afraid of being judged and I hated the word failure, I hid all my flaws from the world and can you believe I actually thought that was okay? I would be going crazy asking myself what's my purpose? Why am I not good at anything? The truth is, I don't have a purpose and I'm not naturally good at anything. But I changed and it wasn't something I learned in an instant, I took some time to understand and reflect that my purpose comes from within. It comes from passion, hard work, practice, and most of all, a long-term of
A fixed mindset is the easy way out, whereas a growth mindset is more demanding but reaps greater rewards. Many people become anchored on the idea of perfection and while there is nothing wrong with trying your best, it’s implausible to be perfect. A growth mindset allows you to make progress; those who are persistent, are able to accomplish. For example, Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper for lack of creativity, and had he not persevered, Mickey Mouse wouldn’t exist today. A fixed mindset is harmful because you’re so adamant about your proficiency that you fail to persist and accept criticism. Acknowledging critique is one of the most helpful elements of a growth mindset. You can’t fix something if you are unaware of your mistakes. If
When reflecting on my progress to date, I believe I am exhibiting a growth mindset. The reason I feel as though I am exhibiting a growth mindset is because making the transition from high school to college, I knew there would be challenges and I will have to adjust myself to the college life and actually be on my own. In college, I knew my education would continue and that I will be learning way harder lessons than in high school. The work load would be more overwhelming, instead of me going to sleep at 11:30 pm, I found myself going to sleep at like 2 or 3:00 am in the morning due to me typing up a paper.
Having a growth mindset you acquire traits such as implying criticism as a compliment and bettering yourself in those assets. You also have qualities like embracing obstacles and getting a thrill from the hard work being put forth. Lastly, you seek more advanced projects. Growth mindset impacts your success by allowing you to strive beyond expectations. After securing this mindset, you continuously test your abilities to their highest potential. Prospering through is when you realize you have the strength and ability to conquer various jobs. By allowing the brain to be challenged, you prepare yourself for a successful path in life. Entering college, growth mindset will be a high priority on my check list. You can only help yourself in the long
In both of these mindsets, they both have some advantages and some disadvantages. The reason why there are some advantages and some disadvantages I think depend on your personality and what type of person you are. A fixed mindset is an intelligence static that leads to a desire to look smart and have a tendency to, which on the other hand a growth mindset is intelligence and can be developed and leads to a desire to learn and have tendency to learn in different ways.
At John Jay, I Yelisa Luna failed below my GPA standard being that it was my first semester there and a change from whereas I was familiar to Bmcc, being comfortable and knowledgeable on the campus area. Despite the fact I enrolled in four classes, I was excited and a little nerve wracking. I took two classes online and two in person. All the professors were good but I failed short in two of the in person classes. My examination stills wasn't what I thought it would be when I had studied. My CRJ: Police and Diversity became a stressful class due to his first teaching the new topic for the first time,however the professor had stated to bear with the power points because there was plenty of information to take in. I passed the quizzes and almost passed the midterm, but the final was very hard without any view sheets given, not unlike to Bmcc professors who would give or point out what to study for and not just reading everything from chapter 1-14 for the final. Others felt that this class was also stressful on the technique it was being transferred to us most failed as well. I was given a D+ which is low for what I though I would be getting but very understanding of the
The difference between a growth mindset is that they see it as a chance to grow and develop their intelligence even if they didn’t succeed at first that person will try even if they have failed at first and a fixed mindset is that person believes their smart or not at something and don’t really need to put a lot of effort in it or practice more if they're good at it. My mindset about my intelligence and abilities have mostly been a fixed mindset when it comes to stuff I don’t understand or don’t know if I'll ever use it again. Also, my mindset has sometimes been a growth mindset if it’s stuff that I easily understand or if I want to develop more on it. A growth mindset can help you in college to help with improvement through hard
This was a very interesting exercise to do during class. I learned about many different things and events that are happening in the world. The two people that were in my group were Moria and Mei Ling. It was the first time talking to them in the class. I was able to learn a lot about them and what they like to do, where they come from, and things that they found interesting in the media. I learned two interesting pieces from Moria. I learned that she loves to do theater and to sing; she did it all through high school and she loved. The interesting media story I liked from her was about Disney’s Mulan, becoming live-aminated. We were able to really connect over this because we both like Disney. I would say this was the main focus of our conservation. I was able to talk about something that I like, and a make a new connection with someone in the class I probably would not normally talk to.
Throughout my educational experience, I have endured countless hardships that made progress difficult at times. Although it was a struggle through my strong dedication to education, I have also earned a list of achievements for my hard work. These experiences from, failing two of my English classes, to excelling tremendously in mathematics, have molded me into the type of student I am today. I am a student with a growth mindset and, an optimistic outlook on education and, the bright future ahead. I now understand the impact that a positive mindset can have on your future. I am definitely proud of the student I have become. I feel like my journey is unique, but is also very relatable.
One way growth mindset is more superior than a fixed mindset is due to the ability to develop and adapt the intelligence of a person. A fixed mindset will lock you down to the "now". A study done by Dweck tested ten-year-olds with problems that were beyond their reach of knowledge. Many of the kids were excited to learn and do better the next time, but a few were upset. They felt like testing their knowledge defeated them. "In one study, after a failure on a test, they said they'll cheat next time instead of study more. In another study, they found someone who did worse than they did so they could feel better, and in
