School can be like a masquerade, but with less romance and more tension. When I was a teen I started to realize and learn that people can be different, sometimes people use these changes as an advantage which caused people to act like somebody else as if they were putting a “mask” This applies to having a “mindset”, in this case they’re relatively closer to having a fixed mindset, whereas some people will not be afraid at all that they will rather embrace it which makes them have a mindset closer to a growth mindset. In addition to further understanding of mindsets, the mindset are the growth mindsets and the fixed mindsets which were both established by Professor Dweck a Psychology professor at Stanford University.

Neuroplasticity introduces the brain getting used to something throughout repetition that it can also become second nature.

In the hope that, as students we have to have a growth mindset but also as whom who has to teach someone to a totally new thing to them, in Professor Dwecks words she says “you have to praise the process within a growth mindset” Of course by now you may think that it is great to have a growth mindset but forcing one another to obtain it doesn’t work since it is like trying to help someone make a puzzle.
