Static Worldview (Mindset)
“Within a static view of reality, fixed traits organize the individual’s phenomenology; there is close correspondence between traits and actions—traits engender actions, which in turn imply traits. This view of the human reality has the advantage of being parsimonious, but it is not without its potential cost.” (Dweck, 282)
Dynamic Worldview (Mindset), otherwise known as a ‘Growth’ Mindset
“This dynamic, incremental view of human reality...may result in a lower degree of certainty when making behavioral predictions Moreover, because human attributes are viewed as malleable, a high degree of certainty or closure may never be possible. However, compared to the static view, this view allows more room for change, and the mediational analysis fostered by this view may also suggest mechanisms for change... this view may reduce the likelihood of helpless responding and promote mastery-oriented coping in the face of aversive events.” (Dweck, 283)
