Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck’s bridges the fields of developmental psychology, social psychology and personality psychology and examines self-perceptions (or ways of thinking) that people use to structure the self and guide their behavior. Dweck believes that man’s attitude is self-chosen. It is possible to change our setting if we have slipped into the wrong track. However, it is easy to fall back into bad habits.
