Mastery Orientation refers to our approach towards achievement where the focus is on achieving mastery of a task with an emphasis on acquiring new skills, learning and improving against self-set standards. It arises from the belief that we have control over factors related to our learning, that hard work and effort pays off, and that we have or can acquire strategies that will help us learn. With this attitude we are more likely to enjoy and seek challenges, persist in the face of obstacles, and view our failures as due to inadequate effort or poor strategy rather than lack of ability.
Research says that Mastery Orientation is highly adaptive and carries many positive qualities, including perseverance, seeking out challenges and a desire to learn.
