3. The belief that praise, particularly praising a student’s intelligence, encourages mastery-oriented qualities

This is a most cherished belief in our society. One can hardly walk down the street without hearing parents telling their children how smart they are. The hope is that such praise will instil confidence and thereby promote a host of desirable qualities. Far from promoting the hoped for qualities, this type of praise can lead students to fear failure, avoid risks, doubt themselves when they fail and cope poorly with setbacks.

(Mueller & Dweck, 1998)
