The dreamer mindset is the one I love the most. People who possess this mindset have the ability to dream big and think big. They love to believe that anything is possible, and they have the ability to come up with incredible visions for their future.

Though, the mindset of a dreamer does have its flaws.

The advantages of the dreamer mindset:

  • You possess the ability to think big

8. The Follower Mindset

The Follower Mindset - Different Types of Mindsets People Have

The follower mindset is a way of thinking that easily allows others to decide what’s in store for your future. With the follower mindset, you don’t have complete control over your life, but you’re allowed to believe you do.

By telling you this, I mean that people who ‘follow’ are those who go with the normal way of doing things. They don’t like to question things.

Therefore they go to school like they’re supposed to. They get a job like they’re supposed to. They start a family like they’re supposed to.

Does this sound familiar to you?

The advantages of the follower mindset:

  • There’s less risk being a follower, and you’ll feel ‘safe

The disadvantages of the follower mindset:

  • You will be going after what others want, not necessarily what you want
  • You might never truly achieve happiness
  • You’ll potentially only ever do or achieve things that 90% of others also achieve

7. The Greed Mindset

The Greed Mindset - Different Types of Mindsets People Have

We’re guilty of always wanting more. It often doesn’t how much money we have, we still want more. It’s a vicious cycle.

In the past, the wealthy have been associated with being greedy. A common misconception. Nothing good comes from being greedy; and when we want more, we never fully achieve happiness despite how much we have to be thankful for in our lives.

The advantages of the greed mindset:

  • It may motivate you towards becoming a successful and wealthy individual

The disadvantages of the greed mindset:

  • Your greed may be the death of you
  • You will always want more, and never fully be satisfied
  • You’re not focused on helping others, one of the prime purpose’s in life

6. The Gratitude Mindset

The Gratitude Mindset - Different Types of Mindsets People Have

We put the greed mindset before the gratitude mindset in this article on purpose. A lot of people forget to be grateful for everything they have in life. For having a roof over their head, a paying job, a family, a good supply of food and water.

We often forget to be thankful for what we have, because the majority of people within our country of origin have exactly the same as us. The people we speak with and spend time with on a daily basis; all have access to the same basic resources we have.

If you can be grateful for what you have, you won’t take anything for granted in this life, and you’ll be happier in the long run.

The advantages of the gratitude mindset:

  • You appreciate the things you have a lot more
  • It keeps you humble, no matter how much success you achieve in life
  • It’s a lot easier for you to be a happy individual
  • You’ll make the most of the precious time you have

The disadvantages of the gratitude mindset:

  • There are no real disadvantages of being grateful

Do you possess the gratitude mindset?

  1. Thanks dan, this article is good enough to give someone a mindf*** about who they are. Such a great mindset reception guide for anyone.

  2. Before going to tell anything, I just want to say that mindset is nothing but the set of assumptions or set of attitudes possessed by someone. The growth of mindset generates incitement and efficiency in the globe of business. Here, you have grouped 15 different categories of people having different mindsets. I think the mindset is a huge determinant of success. Because if you think more, then only you can do more, else lesser amount of success will be at your side. So, in this specific regard, I would like to say that, if someone thinks that he can avoid failure at all costs, that means he is much confident of his skills and this kind of mindset is usually required when someone is thriving for success.
