Examples of Self-Fulfilling Prophecy
When someone scores high on an IQ test, they will begin to think that they are smart and will have higher expectations for themselves in life.
When you walk into a class saying, "I'm going to fail this test," you have convinced yourself that failing the test is okay, and it is now more likely to happen.
You consider yourself a "C" student and as a result never strive for A's. You fulfill your prophecy and continue to make only C's.
You are called "stupid", so you convince yourself that you truly are stupid. Therefore you do not try to make yourself any smarter.
Someone tells you that you're extremely smart and will have no problem in a specific class, based off of that you work hard to live up to the expectations.
