I Am a Very Open-minded Person

    Being an Army brat, you learn to accept a lot

    of people for who they are, their different cultures and beliefs. To close your mind to these experiences would be a disaster, unable to enjoy life and the people that crosses your path

    One should always be open new ideas

    and points of view. Closing off your mind puts a limit on how much you can learn and understand.

    Yeah

    I would like to think I am open minded, There isn't much that shocks or bothers me, or at least I don't understand. I think as time has gone on we have been closing our minds a fair bit, which is a shame....

    Necessities For An Open-mind

    Since I was very young I have spoken openly about my beliefs and controversial thoughts. I grew up with a father who was a bookworm with an interest in the occult. On the other hand my mother was practical and focused on what is deemed 'acceptable' by society. Being raised by two...

    very very in some areas and not at all in others!  but this seems to be changing somewhat with the advancing years, i'm becoming more relaxed and less strident in my views, more accepting of others' ideas.  but didn't we have a similar Q already today?

    I Will Discuss Anything.

    Sometimes I'm not too comfortable with the subject matter. Yes I've talked about lots of S & M, about kinks and perversions. There is much to talking about things to, since that way you discover what interests you and what doesn't. Life is about choices, and I am open to...

    Dont Missunderstand Me!!!

    Being very open minded is so annoying sometimes. Because the way i talk open, act open, being so honest, being humble make people to think about me wrong ways. It depends. But i think being open is being honest and humble. So what ever its i live as a true person. I don't care...

    Well, at least I would like to think

    that I am. When it comes to beliefs, religion, philosophies, etc. I'm always pretty open-minded. I like learning about different cultures and different individuals' viewpoints on things.

    I might be young but I have learned from my

    grandfather that by keeping an open mind you can learn many new things and make some pretty cool friends. I like to learn new things and get other's perspectives. It helps me to better understand the people and the world around me.

    There's a saying that I can't quite remember

    about how a mind is like a parachute, it only works if its open. I can get along with people who think differently because somewhere there is some link, some common bond. I just try to keep my parachute open.

    and a blunt one at that. I am always looking for new experiences and to push my boundaries when it comes to old experiences. I love meeting new people from all over the world, so I definitely love to travel.

    I am open-minded. And

    so I am willing to hear, listen, think, consider, ponder, visualize and imagine all most all things. I am open-minded. What I am not is quick and overly accepting to adopt and incorporate every idea I am opened to.

    I consider myself an open minded person,

    The reason I am an open-minded person is

    that I enjoy learning! If you close your mind to other points of view you also close yourself off to expanding your mind. Being open-minded doesn't mean that you will agree with everything that you hear, but I do think it means that you can engage in conversation with people who...

    A Mind Is Like a Parachute, It Only Works When It's Open.

    It is not my job, intent, or prerogative, to judge anyone else about anything. I can't stand when people judge me, why would I do it to anyone else? Oh, and the fact that nothing shocks me helps.

    It'S Simply Logical

    I don't see any point in walking through life with a closed mind. Be moral, have standards, be stern with them, but outside of avoiding the bad things, to be close-minded is like inviting death into your life. You have a life, a mind to explore it with and a short time to do it...

    I am gay, so I'm very open minded on that. If it comes to religion, well, I'm kinda open minded. I try to be open minded. If you say religion or "god" can cure me, that's where it crosses the line and I become close minded. But, for the most part, I am very open minded. Anything...
