Dealing with close minded people

This is one of Steve’s most helpful posts in a long time. We all have them in our lives, people who won’t listen. I would like to add my two cents worth to this in the near future but Steve has set the ball rolling when he starts by challenging the position that many of us take when we meet resistance. How can you intelligently deal with people who are close-minded, totally stubborn in their beliefs and unreceptive to new ideas? Steve Pavlina

It’s all about ego. And the key word is intelligence. How quickly do our brains go and our emotions take over when our ego is challenged. In any situation I could be wrong. That is a fairly daunting prospect to apprehend.
