    Close-minded, open-minded, it's beating a dead horse, a nothing question.

    When you consider the kind of responses we saw in the original thread, while it may seem like a dead horse to some, the problem certainly seems alive and well in a large part of the forum community...

    Btw, to the OP, with regards to option #1, if we take that as fact, then what say you to the possibility that the distribution of open-mindedness and close-mindedness differs from type to type?

    And would said distributions lend greater support to Socionic's or MBTI's methodology for labeling types judgers or perceivers?

    Oh, and also, is it possible that Js and Ps are simply open or close-minded in different ways?

    And then, what might that mean about the common generalizations about different type's open or close-mindedness, and the common definition of open or close-mindedness?

    Is there an inherent problem with the term to begin with?

    Considering your smugness, I just figured you must know...

    We all know that we need time to assimilate an idea, a fact, a concept. It's not magic. Sometimes I just feel the urge to stop looking around me and to focus on what is still superficially implanted into my nervous network. If I don't do that, I can't build a reliable network from which emerge the finest creativity, nor looking serenely for new inspirations/datas around me and assimilating them correctly. For the sake of my huge open-mindedness ..
