Open-mindedness

2 years, 7 months ago

This just popped into my head after reading the thread on 99 ways to help live you more consciously, but at which point does being open-minded reach the boundary. I mean there is definitely a limit, for example take josef fritzl, that’s bad on almost every level, but if you were open-minded enough then I guess its acceptable? where does open-minded border wrong I guess is the question

@c0ndu17, Oh man.

You are as open-minded as your relative self allows you to seem to be.

This one is really hard because we are not equip with infinite senses. Our nature forcefully makes us see patterns and predict outcomes to get by. With this in mind, it really goes against our nature to try and be open-minded or objective, because we can’t. You’d go bat s*** crazy or just become ignorant if you went too far with your “open mind.”

There is no such thing as open-mindedness or closed-mindedness, it is figurative, situational and it relates on how much, different things at different times open our minds/make us imaginative to perceive them. It’s become an overused title for idiots who are not sure what they’re talking about.

Usually a lot of limited-minded individuals, emphasizing on one thing only declare, that for people to understand them they should be open-minded. Which is contradictory while the whole meaning of being open-minded is understanding more than just them. Be careful with humans who self-label themselves with open-mindedness, they might believe in everything that happens in movies, be ultimately naive, contradict themselves all the time and give you a chronic headache if you are close friends.

Stand strongly by your morals, and you’ll be fine. Just be willing to listen to others and decide for yourself whether or not you agree.
