    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...

    They...

    have the ability to understand and retain information that many people can't. They can relate to people without asking too many questions. That is just the type of person that I admire; someone who can understand something without question. Open minded people have the ability to...

    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.

    It is refreshing to have an open minded

    conversation with someone. Whatever background we come from, or whatever our beliefs are, an open mind is a commonality we have.

    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.

    In my regional language there is a famous old

    say 'manadhil ullathai sol aanal manadhil pattathellam sollathe' meaning say whats in your mind but dont say everything that comes in your mind. Yes in that way open minded people can be trusted because they cannot be called 'ooma kusumban' (silent killer) they will speak...

    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 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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

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