How to Deal with Closed Minded People?

What is the definition of a closed mind person? What is the motivated force behind those people who have closed minds but they always open their mouth? Do you meet any of them and how you dealt with them?

Today When I was watching political talk show in which one politician was presenting his future programs. The way he was talking it was very dishearten process for me because without any vision and proper development he was talking like a genius although my statement about him was, “what a stupid and close minded person who is thinking we are going to believe on his presentation”. I change channel and start searching for some good program to get rid of this feeling. 

But my mind was still thinking about that particular politician and question which was coming into my mind was, “How to deal with closed minded people? What is the definition of a closed mind person? What is the motivated force behind those people who have closed minds but they always open their mouth? Do you meet any of them and how you dealt with them?

Some thoughts I want to share with you all and wish you will also share your thoughts on this subject while giving comments on this article.

As a first thought, freedom of expression aside, some people who are close minded tend to be defensive in protecting their ideals against people who they think are very forward in their thoughts and principles (aka liberals). They might felt that their ideals are attack so they speak up to defend them. Sometimes, what comes out of their mouths don’t have an ounce of logic or reason but it doesn’t matter as long as they feel satisfied that they defended their own.

Second thought is because close minded people don’t have the capacity to absorb or try to take in things so they tend to give out things which is usually done by their mouths. This is very common for them as they think that they are always correct or their ideas are correct enough that it should be given out and be used by other people. They are often the ones who don’t listen or don’t know how to use their ears. Their minds are concentrated on what they know only and equivalently aren’t getting any other things from the outside source. Those kinds of people are really the most stupid people that there can be. They are the ones that hinder growth and improvement and mainly are the braggarts who only knew how to talk and not take action.

So it’s your turn now to share what you think about this growing problem around the world?

    Very well-said. Close minded people think their opinions are always right. They are not interested in what anyone else has to say nor are they interested in changing their ways. Don’t ever try to argue with one because you are pretty much wasting your time

    Sometimes it’s just best to listen, nod and move on. If someone wants to believe something in particular, so be it. As long as it doesn’t effect my world. I’m cool. I’ve learned that most people just want to be heard. They don’t really care if you agree or not.

    They usually get joy out of hearing themselves talk – do not give them an audience and do not argue with them, walk away.

    Unfortunately there are many closed-minded people everywhere,and I prefer not to listen to them because I have better things to do.
