Mindsets is a concept that is fairly recent to the field of psychology. Introduced by Carol Dweck, her work with mindsets began in the last decade (2009;2010). Her work sought to demonstrate how different attributions of goals, effort, success, feedback and many other aspects of performance are appraised by individuals. With this she developed fixed, mixed and growth mindsets. This demonstrates the orthogonality of the construct, but various components of fixed and growth mindsets are elaborated upon below.
