Mindset Assessment is a psychometric assessment tool developed by Mindset Academy. Our assessment and concept is based on Carol Dweck's and other behavioural scientists previous research on the subject and has been developed by leading specialists and researchers in the field.


The evaluation is based on self-assessment and the answers are compared to a database of thousands of respondents. The results are presented in the form of 11 dimensions of thinking and, in addition, have been indexed to show the weighting for a growth mindset and a fixed mindset. Our approach also highlights the most common current dimensions of thinking in the field of work psychology, such as curiosity, optimism, novelty seeking and work engagement. On the other hand, we also highlight possible tendencies to perfectionism and failure avoidance.


Our principle is to avoid labeling people and to help individuals and work communities identify and develop their own way of thinking, and to take teams to the next level in solving challenges together by consciously leveraging the strengths withing the groups. Our assessment and approach seems to be most beneficial in situations where it is necessary to find new thinking in changing situations and, on the other hand, to identify thinking that we want to avoid in the middle of these challenges. Our assessment is also making the learning orientation visible, as several measured dimensions are at the very core of learning. The Growth Mindset assessment, on the other hand, is not best suited for practicing interaction skills, identifying communication styles, or structuring personality traits.


Our concept has been used in numerous large Finnish and international organizations, and since 2017 we have also certified professionals to use it in their own coaching work and for people development specialists within the organization.



We offer the Growth Mindset certification program, which gives you access to Mindset assessment for individuals and teams, as well as development methodology with support extensive materials.
