This article is basically about how certain types of people learn faster than others. This was interesting to me because there are a lot of stereotypes saying that certain ethnicity are smarter than others.

While performing the flanker task, subjects wore an EEG cap, a monitoring device filled with greased electrodes that records electrical activity in the brain. It turned out that those subjects with a growth mindset were significantly better at learning from their mistakes. As a result, they showed a spike in accuracy immediately following an error.

It turns out that ethnicity doesn’t really matter. You learn by making mistakes and trying again and again. You need practice to make perfect. These sayings actually do mean something
