a person who does not want to hear the other side of the argument. But in our postmodern world people accuse anyone who has firm beliefs of being narrow minded.
You'll hear alot of people say ' Christians are narrow minded people '. But the funny thing is these same people are themselves narrow minded and bigoted and intolerant ( there's a popular one )of Christianity. They contradict themselves.

Get the narrow minded mug.
a person or persons who cannot see beyond their own set of values and/or will not accept them. Is often related to religious matters, where people cannot accept the other religion's beliefs. It often happens where one is in ignorance.

My brother can be narrow minded because he thinks that all gays have HIV, and that it is stupid to be gay, and you always get AIDS when you butt-fuck someone.

Intolerant of another's views. This is a mentality that is often associated with cliques and coteries. A narrow-minded person will even accuse someone of being "stupid" or ((name some other bad trait here, even "narrow-minded" itself!)) the other person who expresses a viewpoint or reason for believing otherwise than the narrow-minded one's views. Or, in some cases, a narrow-minded person might even go to the extreme of primate-like behavior, such as throwing food or insults at the other person, because the narrow-minded one doesn't have a cohesive argument to counteract what the other had said in the discussion or debate.

Interesting thing: people who accuse others of being narrow-minded are often quite narrow-minded themselves.

Aura hurled food, insults, and other sorts of shit at Anne because the two women didn't agree. (Aura did that because she can't stand anyone who wouldn't believe the same thing as she does, or refuses to flatter her.) Aura's very narrow minded.

A label people stick on anyone who firmly believes anything at all.
In today's wishy-washy society, anyone who has the guts to stand up for what they believe in when (esp. what they believe in is unpopular) is labelled as narrow minded because everyone else is so open minded that, in many cases, their brains have fallen out.

When they say "Great minds" do they mean great as in intelligent or great as in significant? Is this quote about how smart someone is or simply about the their significance in life/the world? If you think it means neither of these things then let me know what you think the quote truly means.

Great Minds Discuss Ideas; Average Minds Discuss Events; Small Minds Discuss People

“Men and women range themselves into three classes or orders of intelligence; you can tell the lowest class by their habit of always talking about persons; the next by the fact that their habit is always to converse about things; the highest by their preference for the discussion of ideas.”
