The power of believing that you can improve [ TED Talk : Carol Dweck ]

The power of believing that you can improve [ TED Talk : Carol Dweck ]
Carol Dweck researches “growth mindset” — the idea that we can grow our brain's capacity to learn and to solve problems. In this talk, she describes two ways to think about a problem that’s slightly too hard for you to solve. Are you not smart enough to solve it … or have you just not solved it yet? A great introduction to this influential field. This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxNorrkoping, an independent event. TED editors featured it among our selections on the home page.
