    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.

    Closed-mindedness is probably one of the

    biggest turnoffs on the planet. You can have your opinion, I just want to see someone who will not close a door just because it is something they do not like or think they won't like. Now, I have my own opinions. I have my reservations, but I do not close myself off to people...

    I would probably make a good detective,

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

    Closed-minded people annoy me very much

    but not as much as people without common sense. You know the stuff that is not really common apparently lol. I'm sure I am not the only one that feels this way. I mean, I can co-exist with them but of course there are some things you just can't talk about because they don't get...

    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.

    I Like Asking Questions?

    I strongly believe that open-minded people make the world go round. If we had no open-minded people, who would help us in times of need? Are close-minded people really open-minded, but only to their own needs and insecurities? I would really like to see more stories on this topic...

    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...

    When I was young the world was

    so black and white. These behaviors and activities were good and these behaviors and activities were bad. Today I realize most of that is bull, and judging people for things that don't matter and are often none of your business is not cool. I think I'm a much better person...
