In two studies, we examined the influence of a growth and a fixed creative mindset on task-approach, other-approach and other-avoidance achievement goals, creative self-efficacy, enjoyment, and perceived performance and effort exerted among college students from Mexico. Results from study 1 showed a positive influence of a growth creative mindset on task-approach achievement goals and creative self-efficacy. Results from study 2 showed a positive influence of a growth creative mindset on task-approach achievement goals. Similarly, a fixed creative mindset had a positive influence on other-approach achievement goals. Last, a growth mindset had a positive influence on creative self-efficacy and perceived performance/effort exerted. From our results, we can conclude that holding a growth creative mindset was related to adaptive motivational and performance outcomes among college students. The theoretical and applied implications of our results were discussed.
