The assumptions you make can have a major impacton your performance as a student. Therefore you need to spend a little time becoming familiar with them andtheir implications.In addition, the mindset assumptions you are investigating in this assignment will also be relevant to yourconduct as an employee and as a manager of other employees.Understanding your assumptions about thehuman capacity for growth potentially has a major impact on many areas of your life, as will become clear asyou complete this assignment.CONTENT/FOCUSMany students entering University assume that the key factor that impacts on success at university is basicintelligence.In fact research indicates that theassumptionsthat one makes about the nature of intelligence(and one’s general capacity for growth)have a greaterimpact on one’s study successthan ones actualintelligence. This is because of the impactthese assumptions have on one’s motivation to succeed and on one’sapproachto study. (In short the assumptions in themselves are only significant because the people who holdthem thentake actionconsistent with these assumptions. Some individuals’ assumptions lead them to engagewith study, othersassumptions may lead them away from study).Students who believe that intelligence can change over time are assumed to be more motivated and morelikely to consciously manage their study with a view to building their intelligence.They may for example,invest the time to break their study into manageable steps. They may be prepared to find the experience offailure energising rather than defeating. They mayshow what is called ‘grit’ in pursuing their studies and beprepared to tolerate considerable discomfort in pursuing their academic dreams.
