What is the Mindset inventory?

A person's mindset refers to their implicit beliefs about personal attributes and is considered a personality trait. Research suggests that the individual mindset is not static but can change throughout one's life.

There are two types of mindset:

  1. A growth mindset emphasizes the belief that attributes like intelligence and personality are changeable and capable of improvement through effort.
  2. In contrast, a fixed mindset refers to the belief that such attributes are inherently stable and unchangeable over time.

Why measure Mindset?

Research suggests that a growth mindset can be seen as a predictor of resilience to challenges. People with a growth mindset learn more efficiently and achieve their goals more easily. Therefore, a growth mindset can be a powerful tool as people work towards venture’s success.

Mindset analysis is particularly useful for job roles which involve creative and flexible mindsets. For example, you could build Mindset analysis into your hiring process for job roles including: 

  • Creative directors
  • Marketing leads
  • Innovation managers
  • Consultants

When should I use the Mindset assessment?

The Mindset assessment can be used at any stage of the hiring process, but it’s particularly relevant in the early stages when you’re still getting to know each candidate.
