Effect of implicit self-theories of intelligence on task persistence and performance in an adult sample: test of a structural model, The
Implicit self-theories have been studied extensively in children as part of a social cognitive approach to behavior and performance and have been found to increase persistence in the face of challenge or failure, leading to increased performance on difficult tasks. Recently there has been some support for the idea that implicit self-theories are relevant as well for performance of working adults.
