mindset
MINDSET

“The term mindset refers to ‘a fixed attitude or state of mind’ that provides a context for the interpretation of data or events or for making decisions. Mindsets are stubbornly durable. As the world changes, the validity of some mindsets will erode; but often only overwhelming evidence or some kind of disaster is required to change the way people think.”
