This article references a book called Mindset by Dr. Carol Dweck. According to Dr. Dweck, there are two types of mindsets. (quotes from the article)
I’m reading a book right now called “How We Decide” and it sounds similar. I think the human mind is absolutely fascinating and love anything like this. I’ll buy Mindsight on Audible. I keep my “want to read” list on my LinkedIn account. Easy to add stuff to it, and see what others are reading too.
The fixed mindset: “intelligence is fixed and what we know is what we know. A lack of natural or immediate understanding is viewed as a flaw”.
The growth mindset: “people seek out more challenges and are willing to be incorrect for the sake of learning. With a growth mindset, people know learning is a process and can be done by anyone”.
From How We Decide:
“Our best decisions are a finely tuned blend of both feeling and reason and the precise mix depends on the situation. When buying a house, for example, it’s best to let our unconscious mull over the many variables. But when we’re picking a stock, intuition often leads us astray. The trick is to determine when to use the different parts of the brain, and to do this, we need to think harder (and smarter) about how we think.”
