I think it's a human trait :lol: I try not to be and these days, having students from quite diverse backgrounds, I do try to keep an open mind. I do find that newer equestrians or those that have found a new way can be more fundamentalist :-D

I have never before pondered the meaning of the word 'fundamentalist'. It doesn't quite mean exactly what I had thought.

I am terrible for this and I fuel my own beliefs by devouring literature on the subjects I already believe in which further reinforces my ideals. I do try to read outside of my thinking too, but I get all cross and indignant :lol:

Exactly. It can be so exciting to find something new and have light bulb moments that it's hard not to want everyone to experience the same epiphany.

I am not trying to be less fundamentalist but I am trying to make my feelings less obvious. I'm not convinced anyone else would think it was working, but I know personally how much effort it takes for me to tone it down and keep a lid on some of it! :lol:
