Do Human Beings Have "Dogmatism Quotas?"
Lately I have found that many I expect to be quite open, because of their associations with "Liberal tolerance" are actually quite dogmatic in other areas. And vice versa.
This surprises me, quite frankly. Because... up until 2008 I believed that rigidity in one area of life was likely to foretell rigidity in others.
What do you think? Do we tend to need a certain amount of dogmatism in our lives? So that... when we are open minded in one arena, we actually shut down in another??
