What is openness?

What are the qualities of an individual with openness?

A fearless emotion, of receptivity.  An intelligent capability that allows for your world, your work and self to be re-organized, as you listen and absorb new experiences. 

 

Genuine open-ness, is the capacity to suspend agenda and and conditioned responses, awakening the mind and heart to signals that are “new”.  A fresh examination of  new facts, concepts, people and history, most of the time it generates an uncanny sense of objectivity. The individual faces a minimal level of interference from internal scripts that wishes to protect a strongly held world view, that has always resisted being re examined or questioned. 

 

It is an emotion critical to effectively manage “chaos”.
