John Templeton Foundation (2014-2017) Ruling the mind: The synergistic effects of mindsets and mental control training

Personnel

Abstract

This grant supports research to empirically evaluate the merit as well as the opportunity conveyed in Sir John Templeton’s observation:  “When you rule your mind, you rule your world.” Specifically, we will examine the interplay between mindsets that emphasize the value of mental control and training programs aimed at enhancing mental control through practice.
