MIND OPEN, VISION GLOBAL
I am open-minded and curious. Since my mind ranges freely over the intellectual terrain, my worldview extends in space and time. I respect evolutionary change, natural cycles and the web of all existence of which I’m part. I appreciate cosmic distances, geologic time and statements like “Our bodies contain atoms once inside ancient stars.” I know the past provides insights into dealing with today’s problems; that future consequences of what we do must be considered. I realize the world is complex and sometimes understanding it requires simultaneously holding conflicting beliefs.
MIND NARROWLY FOCUSED
I find comfort in not seeking out facts—or exposing myself to beliefs, and values—that would necessitate some revising of my associated worldview framework. (One might call it pre-meditated ignorance!) I'm often able to ignore facts that produce psychological discomfort. I'm generally unable to live with facts, beliefs, and values that are inconsistent with each other. I like to "keep it simple, stupid," and often refuse to deal with issues requiring my mind range widely in space and time, or the complexity of simultaneously holding conflicting beliefs.
