She states that the fixed mindset is the most common and the most harmful because it believes trouble is devastating. People in this mindset believe they either are or are not good at something is based on their inherent nature because it is just who they are. They assume success is created from inherent talent and intelligence.
The growth mindset believes that their potential intelligence comes from learning, while the fixed mindset thinks they only have a certain amount of intelligence. Along with their differences in learning, these students also have a difference in school priorities. The students with the fixed mindset only cared how smart they would appear and turned down opportunities that were critical to their success.
