Top definition
The opposite of closed minded. Taking in any new information as the truth, without any objective analysis whatsoever.

Contrary to popular belief, this is not open mindedness. Open mindedness is finding a balance between closed mindedness and empty mindedness, allowing information in, but having a filter. Many people blame others for closed mindedness, claiming that they are open minded, when they are really only empty minded.

Here's a graphical representation for those of you that are verbally challenged:
Closed Minded----Open Minded----Empty Minded

Open minded, the balance of closed minded and empty minded, is the optimal thing to get. But, like I said, it is not achieved by just being empty minded; one must find a balance, not an extreme.

Example:
:OMG I SAW DIS MOVEE ND NOW I BELEEV BUSH BLU UP THE WORLD TRADE CENTER!!!

-I accept your theories as valid speculation, but until you provide me with solid, grounded evidence I won't be able to truly believe in them. Based on the general unlikelihood of the notion of your idea being true without any proof, the theory has the burden of proof before it should be believed.

:NO LIEKOMGZ TEH MOVEE SED IT WUZ BUSH, LOOK HE WUZ TAKING ABOUT TERISM BE4 911 THAT MEENZ IT WUZ HIMZZZZZ!!!!w#!1111!!!1

-Yes, I saw the movie as well, and I understand your point, however these interesting coincidences only really justify further investigation, not immediate belief in the ideas. One can find equally interesting coincidences regarding essentially any ideal, however most of these suggest things that are untrue. That is the nature of coincidences, they suggest interest in trying to possibly find a cause for their pattern, however the pattern is usually just, well, a coincidence. I am willing to be open minded and accept your theory as valid speculation, as I said before, but I am not willing to be empty minded and just take it without thinking about it. Until there is more evidence that this is the case than that something else is the case, I won't be able to believe it.

:YOR SO CLOZD MINDED!!!!

-Well, I'm trying my best to be as objective as possible, however I suppose there is never any harm in trying to increase my objectivity, thanks for the tip. I think, however, you are probably a bit too "empty minded." No offense, just as a word of advice, perhaps you should take some time to think about your justification of your ideals. A course or two in logic might help you out.

:ZOMG YOR SO EVUL I CNT BELEEF YOO IM LEEVING!!!!!1112!211@!!!!!1!111eleven1!!!!111
