Open-minded or closed-minded - which would you say you are most of the time?

That's a hard one... It really depends on the situation or circumstances. I'd say that I think I'm pretty open minded most of the time BUT if the situation or circumstances clearly go against the Bible or something I KNOW Jesus wouldn't like... I'm closed-minded in that I don't agree & won't. I can tolerate whatever it may be but I will NEVER accept it. Anyway, just my

I'm open minded in the sense that I will listen to any perspective, even of it's completely against mine. Then I try to understand why the person feels that way. There are so many times that I feel conflicted because I can feel so strongly about two opposing points of view.

I consider myself to be pretty open-minded most of the time. Sometimes I'm closed-minded in that I'm not going to change my mind, but most often I'm tolerant.

Im open minded, but like another person said if someone says something that I dont beleive in I am really closed minded to that, such as non believers and their so called proof that God isnt God, that stuff I am close minded to, because I look at my life and what God has provided...what other proof do I need?

I believe I am open minded except when someone talks to me about Christianity and is against it or when it comes to unsolicited advice regarding my children. Other than that, I am always open minded, lol!

I feel I am quite open minded.
I am really interested in why people say what they do and what is the driving force behind it.
I have found a lot of times if I listen to people then me and them (or whoever is at conflict aren't usually that far apart at all). There is usually just a hang up with words or preconceptions or some other things.
