Abstract: Past literature has found that individuals have a fit or develop theory or “mindset” on the development of passion, but little is known about how these mindsets work and its role in regulating passion. The present research sought to fill this gap by examining the different self-regulatory strategies used by fit and develop theorists in response to when passion is low, and how these strategies would mediate the effect of mindsets on performance. Study 1 administered questionnaires to college undergraduates to determine their dominant mindset and intentions to use cultivation and self-selection strategies. Study 2 induced students with either a fit, develop, or control mindset to examine the causal role of mindsets on influencing college students’ self-reported use of cultivation strategies and self-selection strategies. Study 1 found that cultivation strategies marginally mediate the effect of a develop mindset on performance. In study 2 we found that the fit mindset is associated with self-selection strategies and that it is possible to induce a develop mindset into students. However, inducing a fit mindset reduced students’ intentions to use cultivation strategies. The current results support the role of lay theories of passion in influencing students’ self-regulatory strategies and academic performance.
