Consider that you go to buy a tooth paste at a mall. You are flooded with a variety of options like various colors, gel based or simple, with or without salt, with or without sugar, for sensitivity, for whitening etc. You get confused. After a lot of thinking you come to a decision. Even after deciding, you are still thinking whether you have chosen the correct thing for yourself or not. Having a wide open mind invites so many ideas and options that you might get confused what to choose exactly.
Confused people take into consideration even those things that are not required. They look through a lot of options which creates confusion in their mind.
Since they have a lot running on in their head, they are ready to accept as well as give ideas in abundance.
Confusion occurs when people fail to understand the various options that are available. Confused people often feel that they are not being able to think clearly. This disorientation might make it hard for them to focus. In such a situation, it is very likely that they consider the opinion of somebody convincing them to choose something. They can be made to believe in something that is actually not true.
It is possible that such people get carried away easily with advertisements. Consider the above example of the tooth paste; it is possible that while trying to choose from the various brands of tooth pastes, some sales person might gain his attention and make him buy his brand of toothpaste.
“By all means let's be open-minded, but not so open-minded that our brains drop out.”
Too much of anything is hazardous and in the case of a confused people, taking too many things into consideration creates the confusion which might prove hazardous to them.
