Most all of us are raised to believe a certain thing and follow a certain set of “roles.” As we grow in life, as individuals, we are exposed to different types of people and situations. Being open-minded allows us to see other peoples perspectives and opens our eyes to new ideas. I feel the more open-minded a person is the more the person will grow as an individual. Who doesn’t want to learn new things throughout life? Not only does being open-minded allow one to see other perspectives, but I feel people have more respect for others who can be open-minded without judging. Overall, being open-minded is a positive quality in my eyes.
