Are you intelligent or hard working?

You might think that the distinction isn’t that important, but new research suggests otherwise.

In a study of children, those that were praised for their hard work did significantly better on difficult tasks than those praised for their intelligence.

Some have suggested that our beliefs about intelligence, ie that it is in-built and fixed, then influence how much effort we put into a task.

So are you intelligent, or hard working?
