On the contrary, fixed thinking holds that ability and understanding are relatively fixed. Fixed-minded people do not believe that intelligence can be enhanced, or they think that it is essential that you only have the ability and talent.
Thinking differences can also lead to marked differences in behavior. If someone believes that intelligence and ability are immutable traits, they cannot make much effort to change their inherent intelligence and abilities. On the other hand, those who believe they can change these traits may be more willing to devote more time and effort to achieving more ambitious goals. Through a growth mindset, individuals are able to achieve more than others because they are less worried about being smart or talented and put more energy into learning (Dweck, 2016).
