Pedro Calado reblogged this on SocioTech'nowledge and commented:

An article on TIME Magazine provides a useful list of 8 traits that a researcher found were common in highly successful college students. According to Mr. Bain, the first thing students should do is "Think beyond the transcript. The creative, successful people profiled in this book—college graduates who went on to change the world we live in—aimed higher than straight A’s. They used their four years to cultivate habits of thought that would enable them to grow and adapt throughout their lives." Another important point is that the most successful students have a "Growth Mindset", so these students do not believe intelligence is a fixed attribute and rather believe that intelligence can be developed over time, based upon experience and additional learning, opening students up to a much wider range of educational experiences.

  • Full list of traits: Pursue passion, not A’s Get comfortable with failure Make a personal connection to your studies Read and think actively Ask big questions Cultivate empathy for others Set goals and make them real Find a way to contribute
