  • People that are closed minded don't view themselves negatively. They just think they're right about everything, and I'm pretty sure that's enough to keep them happy in their small world.

  • Perhaps they are closed minded on some issues and more open minded on others. Happiness is really relative to each individual - so while you might see them as closed minded, they might think they are perfectly normal and happy. Even so, you cannot change people, so I have found it best just to work on myself to make changes that make me a better me.

  • They may like being that way, but most likely, they aren't very happy.

  • I do not think that just because someone doesn't agree with you means that they are close minded. People have beliefs that they stick to and that doesnt make them close minded. However, it is always good to try to at least hear what someone is saying and think about it. There are many things I do that people do not agree with at all but that's okay....I do what I believe in and what makes me happy.

  • I truly believe that closed-minded people DO NOT know/think that they're closed-minded....and therein lies the problem, because how do you argue/debate/discuss anything? They'll never see your point.

  • Could just be a misunderstanding..and a disagreement with a person's point of view. Doesn't necessarily mean they are close minded.
