Openness (Big5)


Openness is about if you want to learn new things, if you want to consider new perspectives, and if you’re open to change your mind when presented with new information. A person who is not open tends to reject new information, or shows little interest to learn or to consider what other people say. Often, openness coincides with how energetic, interested, and stimulated you feel, where an open-minded person tends to have more fun and is more enthusiastic or excited about new information. A close-minded person struggles to find the energy or time, and often feels more bored.
