012 — Fixed vs. Growth Mindset

growth mindset dweck

In Episode 012 of the Bar Exam Mind podcast, I discuss the differences between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset and which one is best for the bar exam.

Spoiler: It’s the growth mindset.

The credit for discovering these two categories of mindset belongs to Carol Dweck, a world-renowned psychologist at Stanford University, who has spent decades researching success and achievement. She is the author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success.

I also discuss how to encourage a growth mindset if you are a fixed mindset person.
