I try to understand the other persons side of things. I feel that it helps me as a person to understand all sides of things.

I do acknowledge the opinions of others, If I think their opinions are not good or somewhat biased.. I will let them know my side. I'm not that person who just stand on what I believe and don't even care the feelings or ideas of other people.

It really depends on what subject it is. I try to be open minded on most things however, some things I can't be and one of them is animal cruelty. I will not bend to that in no way shape or form. Nor will I agree to elderly abuse. However if it's something that I don't have much knowledge on then yes I try to keep an open mind and once I know enough about a subject and form my opinion, I won't change it unless one gives me reason to.

hiii I do firmly voice my opinions and stand up for the same but I also take care that I don't behave arrogantly. I am open to suggestions from everyone but the decision whether to take in the advice or leave always remains mine. Understanding others perspective forms a part of my identity.

im the one who tries to understand and acknowledge other people's opinions and feelings... i try to know people individually... their behavior, upbringing, values, personality, common sense, etc. as in the whole package. i think it helps because it made me less judgmental...

I do both. I stand up for what I believe in but have open ears to others opinions and believes and reasons. Some time I change my mind.

I think one has to have a mix of both. To stand up for what one believes . It makes your belief that much stronger if you are able to listen to other peoples opinions and get them to reinforce your beliefs.

I do acknowledge others opinion, I believe I would learn from them, but when it comes to arguments I stand out my views, I'm a egoistical person, lol..I try to dominate the situation most of the time.
