First, read Chapters 12 and 13 of your textbook on the social-cognitive theory of personality, specifically pages 367–370 of Chapter 13. Then watch the TED Talk: Carol Dweck: The Power of Believing That You Can Improve. As you read these chapters and watch the video, also consider how goals (a component of personality) can impact success.

Next, in your initial post, answer the following questions:

  • How does thinking about goals differently (performance versus learning) affect performance and success?
  • Do you believe, as the socio-cognitive theorists do, that all learning occurs in a social context with a dynamic and reciprocal interaction of the person, environment, and behavior?
  • How can you apply these findings to your education, work, or personal life?

Bring in information from the text, as well as the video to support your answers.
