    I don't think NTs are particularly open minded, but they are likely to have different and perhaps stranger tastes than other types. This can lead them to think of themselves as open minded and criticize others for not being open minded.

    JK Rowling's understanding of psychology and humanity is near nil.

    on topic:

    NTs I know are either very closed minded with their own strange tastes

    or

    very open minded.

I'm a little more open to alternative medicine practices, because while they don't work for me, they apparently seem to help some people. I wouldn't consider them a primary source of aid if you get your arm chopped off though.
    Look up Sagittarius in the star charts. I'm not talking astrology, I'm talking astronomy; some people liken the image to a tea pot in the sky. To view it correctly in real life you can't be in a city, you need to be south of 55N and north of 65S, between the months of June and September. Actual lenth of time you get to see it varies with latitude.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I'm more interested in the mind itself, to be honest.

    Has hard science attempted to explain consciousness yet? Has evolution?

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    Carful with the "E" word. Lots of intellectuals have trouble with people questioning it.

    Same.

    NTs like to question things, and are very discriminating as to what they actually use and accept.

    There are lots of things out there that hard science hasn't figured out, but it's too hasty to chalk them up to supernatural creatures and whathaveyou. Also, there are so many perception tricks that people play on themselves that it's extremely difficult to know what to trust and what not to anymore. Almost enough to drive a man insane.

    Just catch me a leprechaun and I'll get back to you on it. Okay?

    N is correlated with openness and extraversion is associated with breadth. Therefore Ne is the function that will be open to any idea that seems to come around. ENTP's are the type that entertains the widest breadth of different ideas.

    Ni is associated with depth. It will tend to be open to the things that the NJ focuses on. The reason why an INTJ dismisses a lot of ideas is simply because they'd rather focus on something else. If you can get them to focus on an idea though, then they'll be open to it regardless of what it is, and they may even become obsessive over it. The trick is to try to get the INTJ to focus on the idea. Then their natural craziness will take over.

    I'm not doubting evolution. I question most things. I'm quite insulted by your interpretation.

    As an ntj I am absolutely open to the possibilities of just about anything. However I do not wish to waste energy on anything that is not deemed useful to my objectives. As I have grown older my objectives have grown thus opening me up to various subjects and ideas. With the infinite what ifs that exist within life I find I am much happier and utilize my energy much more sucessfully by focusing on the areas of interest to me. I think an ntp would be more likely to analyze/ruminate on things such as fairies. For me its more like who gives a #$%#.

    I'm entertained by your perception of insult.
