I Believe In Being Open-Minded, But Not Enough So That Your Brain Falls Out.

You Are 48% 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.


  1. I scored 52%. So a very similar result to yours. But because they put one of their arbitrary dividing lines at 50%, I got a different text:
    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.

  2. That's a pretty subtle distinction, anyway. It would take a lot to change my values, for instance, because I don't think of something as defining a value for me until I've already put a lot of thought into it, compared it to other possibilities, and decided it's pretty solid. Or so I like to think, anyway. I'm open to the possibility that I might not be as open to possibilities as I believe I am. :)

    Also, they're lumping a lot of different things in together. Me, I'm super tolerant of people's personal lifestyle quirks and choices -- I don't care if you're a furry transvestite vegetarian Mormon mime, if you're capable of talking to me about Star Trek, we'll get along :) -- but I have a low tolerance for wooly, magical thinking and for authoritarian conservatism.

    And, um, now I'm taking this thing far too seriously. :)

    However did you guess? :)

  4. I looked at and came to the conclusion it was a crap quiz. Call me close minded, but it that there is the definition of skewed.

  5. Well, there is a reason I tag these things "stupid internet quiz." :)
