Are you close-minded simply because you do not agree with someone else's opinion?
You are only close-minded if you refuse to listen to other opinions and if you think your opinions are 100% right for 100% of the people in 100% every situation.
Or if you hold onto your briefs without honestly exploring others views.
If you're not open to a different perspective, you're close minded.
but being open to an opposing opinion doesn't mean agreeing with that said opinion, correct?
Agreed. There is a difference between not agreeing and not being open.
I had an encounter with someone who thought differently lol
No. That's ridiculous.
