22. IMO, that is what is new.. and what wowed me in the conversation
that I had.

Not only an openness to reconsider preconcieved beliefs (which in and of itself, can be difficult), but an opennes to then consider other perspectives to the point that one CAN revise beliefs/stands etc. That has been woefully absent for far too long. Glad to hear that there is an openness to this type of critical thinking among college students.
