Compose an essay in which you summarize Dweck’s argument, her main points, and her most important examples.
Then, draw your own conclusions about the impact of these two mindsets on your life. Where do Dweck’s observations about independence, conformity, and emotional maturity match up with your personal experience? Alternatively, where does your experience counter or complicate what Dweck has to say?
