WHEN YOU LEARN YOU LITERALLY BUILD UP YOUR BRAIN
MAKING IT SMARTER AND STRONGER
Today, during our Brainology® program, we assessed our “mindset profile”.
Oh my Gosh! What does it mean?
It simply means that we reflected about our opinions on learning.
We discovered that, at the moment, we have three different kinds of opinions about learning in our class.
A group of us tend to think that intelligence can’t change much. People in this group prefer not to make mistakes, don’t like to work hard and tend to think that learning should be easy.
Another group isn’t sure about the idea that intelligence can be changed. People in this group care about grades and also want to learn, but aren’t ready to work too hard for it.
The third group believe that intelligence can be increased. They care about learning and they’re willing to work hard. They want to do well, but they think it’s more important to learn than to always get good marks.
During our Brainology program we are going to challenge our beliefs about our brain, our intelligence and our learning capabilities. At the end of the whole program, we’ll go back to compare our new beliefs with the old ones.
Homework for next Tuesday: answer the questions on the handout.
The one I like most is: “If you knew that you could develop your intelligence through effort, what goals would you set for yourself?”
