    I have so much admiration for open-minded people. We need more people like that in the world today. People that understand mental illness without judgement......people that understand homosexuality without judgement. I just think this world would be such a better place if more...

    An open mind is a sign

    that a person is not dogmatic. An open mind is a sign of a person who likes a debate. An open mind is what a person who is quite free of ego likely to have.

    One of the most unattractive things a person

    can be is closed-minded. People need to learn and accept that not everyone is the same. How is it even any of our business? And if they’re not hurting anyone, why shouldn’t everyone be allowed to do what they like? People need to stop being so judgmental.

    I love opened minded people.

    If someone is not opened to suggestions then you might not get along with people. Or be able to try new things you have never tried before. I think open minded people are great because they are not afraid to take a risk and experience cool things.

    I admire open minded people

    because they are very acceptable to things they may or may not do themselves. They except people and their beliefs as they are. They are not judgemental towards other people. They do not have to believe in the same things in order to accept another person.

    close mindedness is the root of ignorance racism

    and hypocrisy. ironically it also seems to be the root of most religious beliefs and almost all successful politicians seem to have closed their brain to new ideas before they knew how to walk

    and there most certainly isn't enough of them!

    they say 'the more you learn the less you realise you know' and I couldn't agree more. I cannot tolerate people who are ignorant, closed minded or who lack common sense. I feel like I'm surrounded by so many people who possess these traits, and it makes me feel trapped. every...

    Quotes on Open Mindedness - * If someone is

    able to show me that what I think or do is not right, I will happily change, for I seek the truth, by which no one was ever truly harmed. It is the person who continues in his self-deception and ignorance who is harmed * It's okay to disagree with the thoughts or opinions...

    a profession at which you had better be open minded. Would have to work on attention to fine detail though.

    Totally. It's unfortunate

    that even as kids, we are taught or conditioned into certain likes and dislikes! Be this or you'll be considered that! If you're lucky, you'll reach a maturity that allows you to be exposed to all kinds of ideas without you needing to feel threatened by them.
