      excellent, i was right 🙂 and i mean as long as you ‘chose’ to leave haha have a great time trying to prove your point when you couldn’t even bring yourself to summarize the thing you’re adamant is true… a lot of commitment there ;()

    Dude, I support you. It is good to do these types of things you shows you are not fake. Its good to be “real”.

    Is there such a thing as being too open minded, though?

    Someone criticizing you isn’t wrong, but the actual criticism isn’t necessarily right either…. How does one tell when a criticism is valid and when one isn’t?

    • Jordan21Michael
      November 30, 2015 at 6:18 pm

      +BritishMaverickk I don’t think being open minded means accepting everything as true.

      I’m an open minded skeptic. Which means I’ll listen to ANYTHING someone says and try my best to evaluate it honestly, on it’s own merits.

      Now sometimes that results in me finding out criticism of myself is valid. Yes… My wife is right… I do tend to mess up the kitchen every time I cook.

      But sometimes it’s NOT a valid criticism. No, enjoying James Bond DOESN’T mean I’m a misogynist.

      You can only determine something is valid by evaluating it. You have an open mind when you are confident enough in yourself to evaluate criticism without getting defensive.

      All criticisms are valid as a perspective, but you can only understand their objective validity once you’ve neutralized all your emotions regarding the criticism.

    • Jordan21Michael
      December 30, 2015 at 1:38 pm

      +Bogs Binny meh. Some criticisms don’t have grounding. Like if I were to say that Adele sucks at singing. I’m not, objectively, correct.

      If I were to say that maybe one of her songs are out of her range and stress her voice… I Might be correct.

      Sometimes insults are veiled as criticisms. They serve no purpose for growing the one they are criticizing and only serve to discourage and hurt people. 

      These are not objectively valid criticisms.

      +Magicbased121 this seems to be an on going thing with him. Clearly he has a lot of personal issues, and from watching him for years now, vids like this come out by him every now and then. Most likely his mouth got him in trouble and now hes on youtube looking for some sort of sympathy.
      I feel bad for the guy in a way, but he kind of brings this stuff onto himself. He really seems to have trouble learning from his own mistakes.
      All the best to him though.

    I am kind of the opposite, its really easy to take criticism, even insults and put downs. Its really hard to take it when people say anything nice about me. I guess I am just as closed minded, just toward the positive rather than the negative. Someone calls me a worthless piece of garbage I am like um ok, tell me something I don’t know. Compliments and praise are really hard to take, it makes my stomach hurt and get upset. I really hate being the center of attention especially when people are saying anything good about me. I don’t trust what they say, it causes me a lot of anxiety. When people say anything good about me I automatically think they are lying, that there is some motive to it, like they are setting me up for something. I know I have trust issues, I don’t trust anyone, not even my self.

      Well, I trust myself but otherwise I’m completely with you.

    • BritishMaverickk
      November 28, 2015 at 10:04 pm

      +MasterWolf73 You say you don’t trust yourself, but here is some food for thought, if you don’t trust yourself, then why are you trusting yourself to believe the insults, and trusting that you ‘already know’ those negative aspects of yourself when someone points them out to you?

      It seems you just don’t trust yourself when it comes to good stuff.

    • Ben Southard
      November 28, 2015 at 10:35 pm

      +MasterWolf73 I totally feel this way too. I wonder whether its just the constant idiots on internet, or something in my personal life, or just some fundamental thing different with my brain. And I can’t tell if its good or bad, like does it cause me to constantly improve on myself or does it discourage me from trying to succeed? I don’t know, I just kind of consider it a part of me at this point.

      +MasterWolf73 I think that the reason you hate being the center of attention is because you’re an introvert. Most internet users are introverts I guess. I also feel a little bit skeptical when it comes to compliments too because I have been backstabbed multiple times. But hey, I don’t want to get personal, but the point is that I know how you feel c:

    What happened? I see you trying to get your point across in the video, but your reactions seem way over the top for the issue in question (being open minded). Something serious had to occur. What actually triggered your emotions and, therefore this video?

    • d
      November 28, 2015 at 10:21 pm

      +Miguel Montes Well to be fair, this man pumps out content on a fairly regular basis. Being close minded means that that attitude will bleed into his content and that’s a disturbing thing.

      +davidabeats You say like being open-minded is an all-out thing, like either you are or not. But in my point of view it is more like an automatic on-off switch that we need to constantly remind ourselves to check if it’s on or off, getting used to the process of constantly reminding yourself to be open-minded is what I see as improving your open-mindness. I hope you get what I mean regardless of english mistakes =P

      November 29, 2015 at 7:47 pm

      +Rafael Coelho I do actually, it make sense. I feel somewhat similar, but I also feel that checking up means we need to have ppl holding us accountable. When we are struggling with issues, the issues can cloud our judgement, so it’s important to have an outside perspective involved in our decision making. Just to add to what you said.

    • Rafael Coelho
      November 30, 2015 at 8:34 pm

      +davidabeats very good point. When that is not an option I may at least try to think as someone from outside, but that is really hard to really do.

    There is a difference between a open mind and a weak mind. You may likely have been exposed to the real you….scary isn’t it. But your ego is the driving force behind molding your charater. In this video your ego is the highest I’ve seen. “Humbling” best way describe it as you have said. So it isn’t your ego that hinders you. It’s your spirit.

    If ever, in all of your learning about life and yourself, do you ever come to accept and hold a belief that you think you can understand anything…then you must also accept that in believing in this way will make you a stranger to yourself. Criticism can be important, impartial, impractical or impolite. introspection can be informative,inspiring, inaccurate, inconsequential or inadequate. Notice the grammatical corelation these words share.

    Im and In are the first two letters and could our subconscious may draw parallels to the statement, “I’m in”. This is where I see your confusion.
    Are people telling you things about yourself you chose to ignore?
    Are people telling you things about yourself in being confronted with your ignorance?
    Confrontations concerning concise conscious correction can complicate communicating coherently causing crazy conversations conveyed.

    Basically. You can’t continue contemplating concepts that contaminate charter because your soul is currently currupt. You feel convicted and can’t convince yourself to take control (almost done). You fear being controlled because only YOU must make up for the bullshit you made up when you messed up moments to step. Fell for your own set up but it OK to be down.

    “Others criticism means nothing unless I’m in control of my own identity.”

    Guys, open-mindedness in the sense of being PC is *not* what’s being talked about here. That much should be fucking obvious; that what Daniel’s *really* talking about is self-awareness. You’ll never improve as a person if you don’t know what needs to be improved in the first place, and it’s very important that you realized that here. And even though most commenters here seem to be on the one mental track of “HURR HURR IS REP AN SJW NOW???”, know that there are still a lot of people here for you.

    Thank god you’re working on that. You’re generally an unlikable prick in most of your videos. I just assume that’s your youtube persona and you’d never actually act like that to someone’s face, and your topics are interesting, so I kind of just accept you as you are. Since you know, I’m open-minded and everything. 😀
