Examples of open mindedness in a Sentence

  1. Erik Pevernagie:

    How can we reconcile " individuality " and " otherness ". How do we bring together two dialectic poles: 'me' and the 'other'. Building up one's " personality " is crucial and consequently self-esteem is required. By listening to the others, by assessing one's life experience, by acknowledging self-regard and amour-propre, open-mindedness can grow generously. Being sensitive to the others, helps to move forward, opens horizons, increases receptiveness and dignity. (" I am on my own side, but I can listen")

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Often in life, you have to work on both fronts, dealing objectively with diametrically opposite premises, and then arriving at the best solution. The open mindedness enables you to be a realist who is also an optimist at heart. Strange as it may seem, you hope for the best, and also expect the worst at the same time. You operate in the real world with best positive attitude, while understanding fully well what is practically possible in a given situation. This synergistic combination of realistic optimism ( or optimistic realism) can help you to deal with problems in an effective and positive manner, in my view, especially during the challenging phases in life.
