More on Carol Dweck

I have posted before on the power of “mindset.  It is a perspective on the mind proposed by Stanford Professor, Carol Dweck. It is important because of its power.  One either had a “fixed” or “growth” mindset.  Brain pickings gets int the difference. And here is a provocative idea.

At the heart of what makes the “growth mindset” so winsome, Dweck found, is that it creates a passion for learning rather than a hunger for approval.

Do you know people who constantly seek out approval? have you ever wondered why?
