Why Attitude Is More Important Than IQ

When it comes to success, it’s easy to think that people blessed with brains are inevitably going to leave the rest of us in the dust. But new research from Stanford University will change your mind (and your attitude). Psychologist Carol Dweck has spent her entire career studying attitude and performance, and her latest study shows that your attitude is a better predictor of your success than your IQ. Dweck found that people’s core attitudes fall into one of two categories: a fixed mindset or a growth mindset. With a fixed mindset, you believe you are who you are and you cannot change. This creates problems when you’re challenged because anything that appears to be more than you can handle is bound to make you feel hopeless and overwhelmed. People with a growth mindset believe that they can improve with effort. They outperform those with a fixed mindset, even when they have a lower IQ, because they embrace challenges, treating them as opportunities to learn something new. Common sense wou…

Mi5‬ is coming to India!

Mi5 is coming to India! Packed with more than 10 tech breakthroughs, it's unimaginably fast and surprisingly light. Powered by Snapdragon 820 processor with an insane 142,084 AnTuTu score, Mi 5 features a 3D ceramic/glass body and fits a 5.15" display in a grip of a 5" device. Is this all you ever imagined, and more?

Mi 5 key specifications:
  • Snapdragon 820, up to 4GB RAM + 128GB UFS 2.0
  • 600Mbps 4G + download speeds, VoLTE
  • 3D ceramic/glass body, 129g lightweight
  • 5.15"" 16 LED light display
  • Front fingerprint sensor
  • 16MP 4-axis OIS rear camera + 2µm-pixel 4MP front camera
  • 3000mAh battery, Quick Charge 3.0
  • Dual 4G SIM (micro/micro), Dual Standby
  • Full feature NFC
  • MIUI based on Android M
Mi5 improves on all aspects of Mi Note with an even slimmer, more comfortable grip. #Mi5 has a flat line and then a curve.
From an engineering perspective, the biggest challenge was to create a single surface with the curved edges so that glass to metal transitions seamlessly.

We also wanted to explore other materials, which led us to 3D ceramic for the back body of #Mi5. It's durable and resists any kind of abrasion really well—up to 8H on the Mohs hardness scale (steel is 4 to 4.5 for comparison, while a diamond is at 10).

"This is not the kind of ceramic you'll find in plates, but high-grade nano-ceramic zirconia." It gives the the texture of marble, without the weight.







"It's also the first time using a home button and a front-facing fingerprint sensor, with a very subdued design—that's Mi 5."

"It comes in other colors, too, like white. And gold. A very light and elegant shade of gold."
