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.

Great minds think alike San Chan but I don't know how you ended up Draco and I ended up HP.

The questions were not what I would call indicative of being open minded (some are - others are leaning towards not being morally judgemental - I think the author is confused on the difference).

i have a feeling, after looking at the stats of this article, that those who either scored "so open minded you might be loony" type results and "you are not open minded at all" aren't very enthusiastic to publish said results, lol.

20% baby! Would've been scary to get higher than a 25%, you crazy people.

I think a lot of the questions had more to do with 'how tolerant of sin are you?' which I said I wasn't, so I lost a lot of points.

i'm curious to which questions others would define as a sin...

here were the questions...


It doesn't bother you to see two men kissing.

There's nothing wrong with an 18 year old dating at 45 year old.

If people should be allowed to drink alcohol, they should be allowed to smoke pot.

You don't think monogamy is necessarily the only way.

You think most illegal drugs should be legal.

You could be friends with both a liberal Democrat and a conservative Republican.

You wouldn't secretly judge a friend who had an STD.

You have friends that are very rich - and friends that are very poor.

There isn't a race that you wouldn't consider dating.

You don't think any one religion is better than any other.

You aren't offended by off color jokes - even racist or sexist ones.

You aren't bothered by public nudity.

You think that everyone is probably a little bisexual.

You don't think less of someone who is on welfare.

You could potentially be friends with anyone, even someone you may dislike intensely right now.

You will try any type of food, even if it's very exotic and strange smelling.

You are open to debating your beliefs at almost any time, with anyone.

You think there may be something to astrology, tarot, and fortune telling.

It's fairly possible that your political beliefs might shift radically over time.

You listen to (and appreciate) all types of music.

You can appreciate trends without worrying about feeling trendy.

You think that it's possible that people have had contact with aliens.

You would engage someone from a strange religion who was going to door to door.

If your lover cheated on you, you would listen to their explanation and consider staying with them.

You could be convinced to change your mind on an important ethnical issue - like abortion or war.

It doesn't bother you to see two men kissing. (Took this to mean homosexually)

You don't think monogamy is necessarily the only way. (Adultery)

You could be friends with both a liberal Democrat and a conservative Republican. (Just kidding)

You don't think any one religion is better than any other. (Christianity is the best!)

You aren't offended by off color jokes - even racist or sexist ones. (Love your neighbor, even the chicks) (and I guess the minority races, too, but only if they live next door)

You aren't bothered by public nudity. (When Adam and Eve realized they were naked, they were ashamed. You should be too.)

You think that everyone is probably a little bisexual. (Homosexuality again)

You think there may be something to astrology, tarot, and fortune telling. (Not quite sin, but being involved in them would be!)

That's how I saw it anyway, but that's just one guy's view. Not as many as I remember, but I wasn't paying super-close attention to it.

whereas i don't think we have the exact same view of what a sin is, i appreciate that clarification Jy

Always willing to clarify, Sean. If I don't, it must be that I 'missed that post' or something.
