Related Words, Beliefs, Background for Choice #2

self test A on the above         self test B on the above      


     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.


At times I try to live in the moment and let stimuli and experiences pass by without judgment. Other times in “pre-meditated ignorance” fashion, I avoid exposing myself to beliefs / values that would necessitate some revising of my worldview. If I nonetheless encounter them, I have been known to ignore facts that produce psychological discomfort. I don’t like facts, beliefs, and values that are inconsistent with each other. And 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.
