Open mindedness

So, I got into a facebook thread yesterday. We got to talking about relationships across races. Of course any fantasy writer knows about half elves, so where of course do we think those come from. But I was raised on fantasy my mother encouraged believing in fairies, unicorns, dragons Etc, so I’ve always had an open mind to these things what I started to wonder was, am I open-minded because I’m just that type of person or am I more open-minded to this type of thing because I’m a reader and a writer of fantasy? Let me know what you think.

  1. I think you have a very lucky combination of the two. For me, I struggle finding interest but since you were introduced into it at a young age; you had the opportunity to imagine and create and those dreams have accumulated over the years. In a sense, this gives you the upper hand in that you know about fairies and trolls and their stories and where they come from and you can have a full blown conversation about it; that’s talent in the making, what you’re experiencing. : )


  2. I think that we all have different choices and identities. If you choose to believe in fairies, thay does not make you weird or crazy, if your mind believes that they are real, then they are. No one could take that away from you. 👍


  3. I firmly believe that reading makes you a more open minded and empathetic person. I actually took a course on empathy in short stories during university that talked about that precisely. On the other hand, you like fantasy, which one genre that not all people like, and indicates that you have an open minded personality. So, I think that for you it’s a combination of nature and nurture.
