MINDSET, EDUCATION AND INCOME. Predictors of a growth mindset.
MetadataShow full item record
Mindset is your beliefs about abilities, intelligence, personality and other fundamental qualities. In this thesis we explore the research question: “what are important predictors of a growth mindset?” Finding these predictors is important to determine better ways of teaching, handling employees and understanding the interaction between people. Using ordinary least squares, OLS, we investigate a dataset based on an online survey conducted by NorStat in 2016 among 1000 respondents. Our most important findings are that age and education level seem to be highly significant predictors of mindset, where being young and holding a high education seem to predict a growth mindset. Our findings suggest that income do not seem to be predictive of a mindset.
