A word exploited by people at times to demean somebody who do not agree with there opinion by calling themselves broad minded and the other narrow minded. But, in actual they themselves have no idea of what being broad minded is. In actual a person is broad minded if he/she is liberal or tolerant in one’s views and reactions and does not get offended easily.
Talking about people who demean somebody on the basis of their thinking or attitude towards life by calling them “narrow minded” are in reality narrow minded themselves.
The modern generation defines there “fun frolic activities” like clubbing, drinking, eve teasing, smoking, etc; as being broad minded. But, it is a sign of meager thinking. A virtuous man nowadays is considered narrow minded.
One quality of a narrow minded person is being judge-mental on wrong criteria like race, caste, religion, color, social status etc; In real everybody judges. Judging on what criteria, puts you in the category of broad or narrow minded. It would be wrong to say that we don’t judge. Judging is the filter that brings us close to some, while far from many.
Some people are out spoken enough to mock themselves, while some treasure it. So, we cannot judge a book just by happening to walk on a chapter. People do consider the out spoken people to be narrow minded at times.
Being broad minded is believing in harmony, accepting the thoughts of other people by understanding their frame of mind and patiently putting our own thoughts. People with a positive mindset always accept their mistakes and appreciate new positive thoughts. In case of low minded people, their opinion is unalterable. Every time somebody disagrees with them, there ego kicks in. So we can say that an egoistic person is also narrow minded.
A broad minded person is always the leader while narrow minded a boss. Now the ball is in your court. You want the people to look up to you, follow you, respect you and listen to you out of respect, or be sweet in front of you, back bite you, do listen to your orders, but out of fear.
Now make the right choice!
