I appreciate all of the statements. One can only aspire to meet all of them.

Regarding “open to intergrading opposing view” I learned in the “Critical Thinking Tutorial” about false dichotomies and that critical thinking does not mean that I must draw either black or white conclusions. When I am open to integrate opposing views, this also opens doors to understanding opposing views, and opens doors to fair, balanced, and positive comprise. Being open is a sign of respect of others and other views.
