    Do you think someone you met could change your view of the world and how you view yourself?

    You have your opinion of yourself and the world around you, do you think meeting someone could enlighten you and ultimately change the way you see yourself and the world?

    But I am fifty-five years old and have had a long time to think about the world.

    So, I am skeptical.

    Still, how could you not be open to new ideas?

    Thank you for asking.

    Most certainly smile. I have had one person in particular who dramatically changed the way I see the world, and everyone after that who has ever been important in my life seems to alter my outlook in some way -- even if it's almost imperceptible -- so that the way I see things now are very, very different than the way I saw them 10 years ago. I'm sure that the older I get the less that outlook will change over time, but it most definitely does happen.

    Absolutely! An open mind is an amazing thing...and leads to new ideas and growth. A closed mind is stagnation with zero stimulation. I'd like to think that I impact people and situations and welcome it in return.

    Absolutely! I'm a senior in college right now and before I met one of my professors, I was totally lost about what to do in life. I didn't know what to major in, nor what to do after graduation. Life sucked. But after taking his class, I discovered a new passion and kind of rediscovered how awesome school is (seriously). Like just talking to certain people and seeing what they've gone through in their lives and what they've accomplished makes you want to do the same.

    Everyone I meet has an effect on me and changes my view of the world.  I love meeting new people and hearing their stories.  I have lived all over the United States and am open to new opportunities and experiences from people.  I enjoy learning about new cultures.  What better way to learn about how others do things than interacting with people?

    My opinion of myself and the world has changed both for better and worse from meeting people. Some people have influenced me in a negative way and make me more pessimistic about the world.  Others have opened my eyes to new ways of doing things and of looking at the world around me.
