I'm often oblivious to whether I'm thinking in the left mode or in the right mode (or centre, up or down or oblique, whatever). Whether it is political or not, I'm interested in views different from mine, where what I haven't thought about often lies. I avoid fixed views and preconceived ideas, i.e., I don't like judgmental, opinionated people. I like thinkers who have the discipline, calmness and intellectual curiosity to seek to understand and engage opinions that are different from their own. I am interested in cultures outside the Western world. I believe in integration. I support the idea of embracing an inclusive multi-ethnic national identity over an exclusive racial one.
