If I'm 100 percent secure in my beliefs/conviction, what's wrong with that?

    Everyone should strive to be %100 on their convictions of their beliefs. As long as it's for yourself and doesn't effect anyone else, you don't have to reconsider your stance.

    It's only a problem if your convictions are negative against yourself and to others where you might want to hear others out as to why your convictions need to be reconsidered.

    For example of a negative conviction is if your stance is all (certain race) of people steal.

    Where a positive conviction is your religious beliefs. This you don't have to reconsider.

    I feel like even though you have convictions, it's always a good idea to hear what others convictions or ideas are because they might deliver something that you've never considered before or never knew about and perhaps now you'd change your stance. It's great to be confident but when you refuse to hear others narrative, then it's less about positive conviction and more about you being pigheaded or rigid.

      And of course there is nothing wrong with your SECURE security in one's beliefs/convictions, 100%... as long as that hasn't changed say, since you last recorded those here for example.

    Nothing at all. Why are you bothering to ask this question if you are so secure?

    It is not the right way to progress and acquire fresh knowledge/skills..... leads to fixed ideas which can get irrelevant or even harmful in course of time as things change with time.... just think about it, had everyone been like that, we would have remained in the forests forever !! An element of insecurity, doubt and fear is essential for us not only to protect ourselves but also to keep looking for new avenues of higher safety, security and progress.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.Not at all.Only in the empty minds of the sheep and trump supporters.

    Well first of all, to deem something wrong is to make a subjective evaluation, so it's only wrong inasmuch as it is thought to be wrong. My only thought as to why that might be wrong is: it's close-minded. Someone that is one hundred percent secure in their beliefs/convictions feels no need to consider other possibilities. You might have some mistaken beliefs/convictions. It might, in some way, be beneficial to correct a mistaken belief. A person that is more willing to question their assumptions might be better able to correct a mistaken belief.

      "a person that is more willing to question their assumptions MIGHT BE better able to correct a mistaken belief". Subjective philosophy again, known bad stuff in philosophy history, thankfully recorded as well as thought, understood & corrected.
