I have always been a open minded person and very open to people and opinions and thoughts. I love all kinds of music. I like hearing new ideas. I like to tring new things unless it's some kind of weird food. Some people don't like to be open minded and only stick to one thing or what they know. Closed minded people are usually not open to new ideas or thoughts. They like one way and that's it. I can honestly say I look at both sides of things or a situation.

For me, I would consider myself a Very open minded person and will often look at things from a broad scope of what is really going on, and what would be the Best solution to the whole thing as well. I know that there are many times things happen and I know if I give my opinion without really thinking about it often times I might not always know all the Truth, so I usually will sit and think about it and give my thoughts later. But I always try to think of what would be in the Best interest for everyone involved as well.

It is a good topic. :-) Well, there are issues on which I am open minded, especially in so far as they are not related to me, and would not affect me. :-) But there are other issues on which I feel I have pondered enough, and based on my analysis come to a conclusion which is sealed unless some fresh evidences to change my opinions are brought before me. So I cant really say I am an open minded person, or a closed minded person. I can just say I rationalize issues and analyze them. And I do believe that I can come to logical conclusions.

I think I am a pretty open-minded person. I never take anything for granted and try to always take everything into consideration. I look at both sides of things also because one may be better than the other one even if it doesa not look that way from the start.

Good question. I think we all like to think we're open-minded. I can definitively say that I am more open-minded than I used to be, and that I try to be as open-minded as possible, but I doubt I'm always successful.
