Encyclopedia > Openness to experience

Openness to experience is a capacity within oneself to apprehend, absorb, and appreciate the world in its multitude of aspects and dimension. Within a set of available senses, it is one’s ability to distinguish nuance, shades of grey, meaning and detail in a given environment or situation. Blocks to openness could range from emotionally limiting frames of reference, prejudice or pre-conception, and self-concept to physical or mental health limitations.
