What is a growth mindset?

According to ChatGPT a growth mindset is the belief that intelligence, abilities, and talents can be developed and improved through dedication, effort, and hard work. People with a growth mindset believe that their abilities can be developed over time through practice, learning, and persistence.

This mindset is in contrast to a fixed mindset, where people believe that their intelligence, abilities, and talents are fixed traits that cannot be changed. Those with a fixed mindset may feel that their intelligence and abilities are predetermined and that there is little they can do to improve them.
