In the previous unit, we dove into the concept of Growth Mindset, and what it means to have one. The opposite side of the scale is called Fixed Mindset. Carol Dweck states that a Fixed Mindset describes people who see their qualities as fixed traits that cannot change. With a fixed mindset, talent is enough to lead to success and effort to improve these talents isn’t required: one is born with a certain amount of skill and intelligence that can’t be improved upon. (Dweck, 2006). Having a Fixed Mindset means that there is no room for growth, you either have it or you don't. Please watch the following video below to gain further knowledge of the traits of a fixed mindset
