    Closed mindedness: Too much J. Will only accept whatever falls into their category of veiw. Ignores or pogroms that which does not fit in.
    Open mindedness: The capability to admit that others are right, even if you do not agree.

    To me open-mindedness has to do with being willing to look over what you've already experienced or what you think you know and be willing to rethink it. An open-minded individual should also be accepting of things that are progressive and fair to everyone.

    Being closed-minded in my book is believing 100% that you are right and could never be proven wrong no matter what and doing whatever it takes to keep that belief. It also means being unwilling to take in certain information of any kind.

    These are extremes obviously. If a woman's husband died, she's not closed-minded for being in denial.

    For me, Open-mindedness is being able to accept new evidence, and being able to reevaluate one's beliefs based on said evidence. So, being able to change your mind, basically.

    Economic power breeds open-mindedness. This is true even if it may not seem so to the outside world in some instances.
    Not really.

    It's not a direct causation. However, an economically strong person is, generally speaking, able to live a more comfortable and well-to-do life. This allows for two things: To live life with generally less stress (resulting in more leisure time and thus a more leisurely, liberal lifestyle well suited to open-mindedness) than a poorer individual, and to get a superior education that builds on this socioeconomic capability that encourages freethinking and contemplation of multiple differing viewpoints. These serve to make the person more open-minded.

    Speaking purely from a materialistic perspective, if an individual has more economic power, wealth at his/her disposal, that person will be quicker and more willing to contemplate or embrace differing ideas or viewpoints simply because that person doesn't require the feeling of safety that existing preconceptions and capabilities provide the closed-minded individual with. A wealthier person has less to lose. This person will therefore be able to take more risks and be more dynamic in contemplating any issue.

    I generally agree. But explain Saudi Arabia.
