Boing Boing: Study: people who believe in innate intelligence overestimate their own

That is to say, if you’re one of those folks who believes that “you can’t fix stupid,” then you probably think you’re smarter than you actually are. I think. I didn’t really understand all of the details of the study or whatever. All I know is that, as a profoundly stupid person myself, I was delighted to learn that I might be able to get better some day. I don’t know how exactly, but it’s good to have hope.
