See Where You Rank in Virginia

  1. Given the types of discussions I constantly find myself in I am constantly told to be more open-minded by whomever I may be talking to. I've attempted to argue that they have a poor idea of what it really means to be open-minded but it tends to end poorly and them with the reinforced notion that I'm closed-minded.

    QualiaSoup of YouTube has made a short, fantastic video describing what it really means to be open-minded and the types of flawed thinking and logical flaws that those who claim to be open-minded tend to make.



    I found it interesting. Hope you do as well.
  2. World's full of morons. They refuse to consider the possibility they might be wrong. Stop trying to get in discussions with those, and ignore them. OI
  3. having the ability to listen to, understand, and consider different perspectives. something that is nearly as important to learning/development as the ability to think critically.

    I have learned 1000X more discussing issues with dyzalot, magnetsteve, and warden than I could ever learn from people that think exactly like me.

  4. You could reach your hand down the front of anyone's pants, male or female and be happy with the results. Wait, what was the question again
  5. Not influenced by personal feelings, interpretations, or prejudice; based on facts; unbiased.

  6. I'm open minded on some things, close minded on other things.

    All I know is, there are no absolutes when it comes to the human mind.

    Binkage.
     
  8. every statement a person makes, can be considered close minded. <---------- This=close minded. You disagree? You're close minded. The guy making the video, he is close minded.. Every person is close minded. No matter what you say, everything, opinions, theories, whatever, are close minded. if you don't understand what I am saying you are close minded.

    Hipsters are the only people with open minds. You don't think so?
    *spoiler alert*
    you're close minded.
     
  9. open minded people understand that your personal experiences shape your biases even though they are not always in agreement with a wider range of experiences / statistics. Open minded people understand that if you only surround yourself with those who share your views, you limit your growth.

    In some circles, if a dude tells you that he is open minded, don't bend over to pick up the soap.

  10. I'm open minded as long as you agree with me.
  11. Being open minded means not giving a fuck when people disagree with what you think and how you live.*

    *As long as they're not murdering you or those you care about, obv.
  12. They are a huge number of the population, 90 plus% most people like to live in a small world
    with their job,family,friends and whatever they believe. Anything else is to scary and to big
    to think about , so they just simply don't, and they don't want to talk about it either.

    Then there are people that are just arrogant and stupid and are smart in one field or two
    and live there life in a bubble of their own beliefs.

    And then there are people that just don't care about anything or care either way. Open your mind
    and believe. the mere fact of your existence is harder to believe in than anything your science fiction
    mind could come up with and yet you do without even realizing such simple concepts
     
  13. sometimes it's the message, sometimes it's the messenger, but it's all in the delivery.

  17. Being able to get along with all types of people regardless of their past, their beliefs or their upbringing.

    the hermits and those who communicate with mostly people like them are among the most closed minded people around. Hard to be open minded when you spend most of your time alone or with people similar to you.

    I mean in person and not the intranetz.

  19. Humans are stupid, there is nothing else to discuss.
  20. What does it mean to be open-minded?

    When your girl sticks a finger in your ass and you have the ability to enjoy it without worrying of feeling/acting/being gay.

    I am against the objectification of this young woman. You should all be ashamed of yourselves. She is someone's daughter, sister, not an object of your sexual desire. Makes me sick that women's only role in our society is as a stimulatory tool for masturbation. Grow up guys, show some respect. By Niceguy<<

    Your opinion is no longer any use to us , good day sir

    Really? How about this entire thread, for starters.... http://www.pocketfives.com/f13/believer82-specifically-believers-scientists-generally-592752/


    Honestly, you're irritating the fuck out of me (and prolly several others atm) with your unwarranted arrogance. You are one of the least open minded people in OT.

    And, trust me, you are not that smart. In fact, youre not only of relatively average intelligence, you are incredibly ignorant.

  29. Is this the thread where we tell believer he's an idiot and toolbag?
  30. I honestly have never taken believer seriously. I have always thought he is just trying to level everyone in every post with his incoherent ramblings.

    Reason: maybe I need to be more open minded
