Brief summary of Dweck's mindset research

 "Still, there are as many answers to this question as there are people, for our mindset plays a crucial role in how we see ourselves and others. Simply put, our mindset shapes our beliefs in accomplishing something.These two extremes form the basis for the concept of a fixed versus a growth mindset. People with a fixed mindset believe they are born naturally gifted at doing some things but utterly incapable of others, whereas people with a growth mindset believe they can become virtuosos of anything if they try hard enough." in Mindset by Carol Dweck on Blinkist. Blinkist offers the best knowledge from nonfiction in powerful, memorable packs.
