More recently, other variables - in particular, personality traits and belief systems - have become of central interest in psychology. For example, Carol Dweck and her colleagues found that children who believed that they could improve their intelligence were better in task solving and more persistent when confronted with difficulty than children who thought their intelligence was fixed. Note that the two groups did not differ in their actual intelligence: all kids were matched on IQ.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
