The Functions of Open-Mindedness and Original Thinking:
The potential for curiosity, perceptiveness, the acquisition of knowledge,
inventive originality, and technical expertise.
Negatively, the potential for speculative theorizing, emotional detachment,
eccentricity, social isolation, and mental projections.
