Many small things connected together and various reasons. Some are brought up as a child to think and believe a certain way and disregard everything els basicly. Some do it for self preservation, where the reality is too much they create a fantasy to live in to protect themself. So many just shallow minds also, but kinda cause of how society works. The less questions you ask the better, the less you think the better. Less and less people get to know themself really which is the biggest enemy when it comes to evil in the world really. You expand the mind through yourself, by embracing ideas, thoughts or even just meditating and take time for yourself and be alone with your thoughts. I think for example entertainment is a good example. If you watch movies/tv shows that make you think diffrent or deeper about things you naturally would do so. But in todays society mindless is most popular.

After years of living a certain way, some people do get very set in their ways and beliefs, but this isn't a universal trait. My mommom admits this is the case with her though.

Best Answer

My grandmother is one of the most broad minded people I know. :) Yes set in their ways, but open to ideas, and accepting other peoples opinions.

Best Answer

We all have that tendency, it just depends on the topic. My mum is a tolerant, reasonable woman...except for her hatred of the US Democratic Party. I am pretty reasonable, but hearing about that Indian lady in Ireland who died because they wouldn't give her a DNC made me see red. Et cetera, et cetera.
