Are you happy when you’re right or when you’re wrong?

Carol Dweck says we have two mindsets: fixed and growth. In the fixed mindset we’re happy when we’re right, when we know something. In the growth mindset we’re happy when we’re learning. In order to learn we have to not know. In order to learn that we do not know, we have to be wrong.

Fixed mindset people are less happy and successful than people with the growth mindset. Do you want to be happy and successful or would you prefer not to be? It starts with the answer to this question: are you happy when you’re right or when you’re wrong?
