Based on your answers in the quiz, you have a Fixed Mindset with some growth ideas. Take the growth ideas you have and put them side by side with the areas where you weren’t as growth-oriented. Explore why some ideas are more intuitive for you. Then research the science. It can also be very helpful to find someone with a strong Growth Mindset to mentor you.

Based on your answers in the quiz, you have a strong Fixed Mindset. Now you have a choice. You can stay where you are or you can be open to change. If you are open to change, we have three recommendations for you. First, look up brain plasticity; plasticity is how brains change. Second, realize that, whatever situation you are in, you have a choice. You can learn from it and get smarter, or you can reject the incredible opportunities that a Growth Mindset offers. Third, find a friend or colleague with a Growth Mindset to mentor you. We wish you much success!
