Every time I log in here @admin and all talkers in general, I encounter so many narrow minded, opinionated and judgemental talkers who rarely accept other peoples views other than their own.
This got me thinking, how do we as talkers become more accepting of other peoples viewpoints? Kindly read some of these solutions.
• Open minded thinking: Two ideas can be true at the same time. You don’t have to be wrong in order for the other person to be right and he or she doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right. You both can be right at the same time.
[li]Use BOTH-AND thinking instead of EITHER-OR thinking. You are right AND the other person is right, rather than You are right OR the other person is right. [/li][li] [/li][li]There is always more than one TRUE way of seeing a situation. More than one TRUE opinion, idea or perspective. Avoid emotional impulsive reaction. Take time and say “I can see your point of view even though I do not agree with it.”[/li][li]People are different. Different people have different opinions. They feel differently. Understand this and acknowledge this.[/li][li]Finally;[/li]It’s all about understanding someone else’s perspective. Ask yourself why they hold that view. What experiences or knowledge do they have to make them think that way? If you don’t know, ask questions.
It won’t necessarily change your view, but you’ll understand that person a bit more which means you will probably empathize more with them and be more accepting.
Being judgmental and being open minded, are mutually exclusive. In my opinion you need to have both traits. So that you can exercise caution and protect your values while also testing the limits of your boundaries or someone else’s
