Universal-Nonuniversal Mindsets About Potential

In this talk, I introduce the construct of universal-nonuniversal mindsets about potential. After reviewing the foundational work establishing this mindset as related to, but distinct from fixed-growth mindsets, I share our most recent advances in this program of research. I propose a theory of mindset-stereotype (in)consistency, arguing that this dimension of mindsets may uniquely offer opportunities for mitigating the effects of negative stereotypes about underrepresented groups.
