How can you avoid closing off your mind? Self-Labeling and Collective

Self-Labeling and Collective Humanity

Around a year ago, I encountered this:

labeling leads to closing off your mind

It can roughly be interpreted as, if you label yourself as part of some

group, you tend to think in terms of that identity. That makes it hard to be

rational and accept things that violate that identity.

This can be particularly seen in politics.

From there, I think there's a good rule to follow:

don't apply labels to yourself as much as you possibly can to retain

autonomy in what you believe
