ABSTRACT

The current study was conducted in order to determine whether there exists a relationship between Growth Mindset, Delay of Gratification and Subjective Well-Being (SWB) in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Data were collected from two hundred and forty-six (n=246) undergraduate students enrolled in educational institutions in the city of Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. Scales used to assess the aforementioned variables were the 3-item Growth Mindset Scale (Dweck, 1999, 2006), Delay of Gratification Inventory (DGI-10) (Hoerger. M., et al 2011) and Satisfaction with Life Scale (Diener. E, 1985) respectively – all of which were administered online in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. IBM SPSS Statistics for Mac Operating System (ver. 27.0.1.0). was used in order to compute a correlational analysis; and all, except DGI and SWB, were found to have no significant correlation. Moreover, the correlation found between DOG and SWB was low (r=0.254, p<0.05). Lastly, a linear regression analysis – for delay of gratification and SWB – was conducted, and it was found that 6.4% of the variance in SWB can be predicted by Delay of Gratification (p<0.001) Ultimately, the findings of this study indicate no statistically significant relationships between growth mindset and delay of gratification or between growth mindset and subjective well-being.
