What do you think about mindset and would you describe yourself as fixed or growth or a little of both. Give examples. The chart was very eye opening for me. I am definitely a fixed mindset person in almost every aspect. I've had discussions with my parents about my mindset but it didn't really click for me until I was able to actually see it written down and evaluate myself. When I look back, I can see many instances where my younger brother would understand something better than I would or do things quicker or score higher on something and my first instinct would be that he was just better than me and I would simply give up. I was very threatened by his success, especially since I was the older one. It took me a number of years feeling lesser than him for me to realize and fully grasp that we were different people with different skill sets and we would never be equal. There are things now that I realize that I can do, maybe better than him, maybe not. But I try to be less competitive and I feel significantly less threatened by his successes now.
