    The outcome that this mindset will render is clearly negative

    Hello. Is it wrong the expression: The outcome that this mindset will render is clearly negative? I wrote it myself, so I am not sure.


    Thank you!

    What is the context? The word "render" is a bit unusual in this sentence.

    There isn't pretty much context. I wanted to use a word with the same meaning as "have". "The outcome that this mindset will have is clearly negative." That's what I wrote in the first place, but in order to sound more articulate tried to changed into another word, "render" in this case, which seems not to work.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say it is wrong, just uncommon. I probably would choose "create" for your synonym.

    The outcome it will produce ...
    The outcome it will lead to ...
    The outcome to which it will lead ...
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
