    Sv: How Open Minded Are You?

    What should be mentioned is the nature of this test, is this a test about openness to knowledge? An openness to intelletual thinking? No. It is a test that how little you care for decency and morality.

    I can't agree, naturally, for I care a lot about morality and common decency. Considering our results, it might just be that my moral values differ a bit from yours.

    That does for me not necessarily imply that mine are better or that yours are worse, because, you see, I am open-minded and that's what the test reflects.
    This is a placeholder for a signature.

    It's a test about in how far you can empathize in an other person or in fundamental questions. This doesn't implying that you have the same attitude. Only a few questions dealing with decency and morality.

    You Are 24% Open Minded



    You may be surprised to hear that you're not very open minded... and a little judgmental.
    You tend to dislike others that are different from you.
    While you may be open to a few new things, you don't reach far beyond what you believe.
    And it's likely that you don't even want to discuss different points of view!

    You have a point there, i reacted more strongly to the morality questions and hence had a stronger impression of those, they do number about half of the questions.

    I think this is the first problem. Morality is always subjective. Depending on which point of view you do your decision.
    We can take the question of legalizing drugs. If you originate from a traditional society which performs shamanistic rituals for reaching higher levels of consciousness you have to judge different as if you originate from a modern society which uses drugs to feel better on partys.
    The same concerns for example the question of the necessary monogamy. Are you deciding from a point of a christian morality or a traditional patriarchal society? The same decision can be decadent or conservative.
    But the point is not to countenance or to support but to understand.

    Yes but with that way of thinking you can support just about anything that might have been accepted in earlier times. I'd say that our morality has evolved since the time you are mentioning, we have however reached a breaking point and from now on it plummets downhill down to true decadence and moral bancrupcy.

    You Are 80% Open Minded You are so open minded that your brain may have fallen out!
    Well, not really. But you may be confused on where you stand.
    You don't have a judgemental bone in your body, and you're very accepting.
    You enjoy the best of every life philosophy, even if you sometimes contradict yourself.
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream at night, in the dusky recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams, with open eyes, to make it possible.

    You Are 60% Open Minded You are a very open minded person, but you're also well grounded.
    Tolerant and flexible, you appreciate most lifestyles and viewpoints.
    But you also know where you stand firm, and you can draw that line.
    You're open to considering every possibility - but in the end, you stand true to yourself.

    You Are 36% Open Minded



    You aren't exactly open minded, but you have been known to occasionally change your mind.
    You're tolerant enough to get along with others who are very different...
    But you may be quietly judgmental of things or people you think are wrong.
    You take your own values pretty seriously, and it would take a lot to change them.
