A fixed mindset is the idea that our ability is stable and does not change over time. A growth mindset is the idea that our abilities can change with experience. A growth mindset is more likely to lead to success after a failure experience because individuals who have a growth mindset tend to view failures as learning experiences, after which their abilities can improve. On the other hand, individuals who have a fixed mindset would view a setback as indicative of their stable, low-level ability.
