    The "except" part of the sentence negates the previous part of the sentence.

    Here's an example: My values involve subjugating everyone to my religion.

    Doesn't sound very open minded does it?

    It is what I said it was! There are no other definitions other than the one I said.

    I also like to think of "openness to experience" when I think of open mindedness. It's correlated to a lot of traits, like creativity and intelligence, and having a liberal political philosophy and being more likely to use marijuana.

    Yes, but people who use marijuana are, in my experience, closed to arguments used by those who are against it. It becomes all about the addiction. The addictive thought-process shuts out all ideas opposed to it.

    Being receptive to other's views or ideas is called conforming which frequently leads to closed-mindedness.
    Really?

    To me, being open-minded means keeping my mind open to influences that might change my opinion on a matter. But when I see a female describe herself on an internet-dating website as being "open-minded", I think...kinky!

    What about.. open-mindedness is the quality of being receptive to new ideas, whether they originate from oneself or another?


    One can be open-minded and receptive to new ideas to a fault, though. We build up our ideas and defend them for a reason.

    Although, recent arguments (which I can't find right now, sorry dudes) for the idea that we are rational like lawyers who want to defend our ideas, not like scientists who want to objectively study the world are pretty convincing.. and telling.

    Yeah... I'm having trouble seeing pure receptivity as conforming. Can there really be an open mind without being receptive?

    Scientists are very closed-minded. They reject all non-scientific ideas. Who said they aren't?

    You can't have one without the other. But I am open to any arguments to the contrary.
