Was listening to an interesting conversation on NPR about gifted children… Apparently, accomplished children who are told that their success is the result of an innate talent are less likely to take risks and increase their abilities than gifted children who are told that their success is the result of hard work and dedication. The second group – those that think hard work is the reason for their success – end up doing better.
