The Relationship Between Growth Mindset and Students' Psychological Well-Being
Research suggests that adopting a growth mindset can have positive implications for students’ academic outcomes, adjustment, academic emotions, and motivation. Having a growth mindset is also positively associated with resilience, which is positively associated with psychological well-being. The present study examined the relationship between high school students’ self-reported levels of growth mindset and psychological well-being. Results of a survey given to (n = 85) high school students demonstrated no significant relationship between students’ overall levels of growth mindset and psychological well-being. Further, results indicated that no significant relationship existed between growth mindset and any individual domain of psychological well-being (i.e., autonomy, environmental mastery, personal growth, positive relations with others, purpose in life, and self-acceptance). Implications for practice and future research in the area of growth mindset are provided.
