  1. First, find out which person does not change his beliefs. In my opinion, there are several reasons: fear of the unknown, inability to act in a new way, superstition, loyalty, cognitive distortion. The first somewhat underestimated by us, since each of us has fear of the unknown. The fewer changes in the life of, the more measured life leads a person, there is more fear of a new fear. Fear is still experienced by people who have been abused (not only physical). For example, the wife lives with a Tyran husband. A person living for many years of violence is not able to proudly leave, he clings to a bit of safety, and security is associated with familiarity. Unwindle act in a new way, live in a new way. Because of this, it is so difficult to abandon bad habits. I repeat, but I will mention -ses to smoke or convey, etc. A person does not know how to. An empty place is formed in life, creating discomfort. The rollback when a person is difficult in a new way and he prefers to behave in the old way. Suhioria, this refers to magical thinking when there is no causal relationship. For such a person, a violation of the usual order can lead to terrible troubles (not we have it, not to change us). The same superstitions, but related to the family or genus, are lacation. For example, my mother said so that I will change. The last, a mistake of thinking works in people, forcing us to act stubbornly, even for the detriment, for example, a crumbling marriage that one partner is trying to save double or triple efforts. Persistence on unloved work, etc. The causes of people who do not change their beliefs. What is terrible for such a person to judge those who are next to him. According to Mussolini, the idiots and the dead do not change the beliefs. Churchill believes that the person who does not change his opinion is stupid. A person is dangerous, who does not change his beliefs, which has influence on other people.

  2. It all depends on the beliefs! If the beliefs are correct, then such a person is terrible for “wrong people.” A person worked all his life in the field of protecting the population from criminals, worked honestly and conscientiously, in accordance with his beliefs. So he is terrible for the criminal world. Maybe vice versa. If a person has his beliefs directed against society, then such a person is terrible for society. There are people who do not change their beliefs, because they consider them right. There are people who change their beliefs, realizing that they were mistaken earlier. In philosophy there are no “stone” statements, it always leaves the opportunity “for maneuver” and this is very correct, because the doubts about the choice are justified, but the fluctuations are not justified when the choice has already been made.

  3. I really liked the answer of Lyudmila Timofeeva and I agree with her. Both the explanations are good, and the opinions of strong personalities who left a significant mark in history are successfully given. I will give the answer to the question “what is terrible”? In my opinion, “terrible” stupidity in any of its manifestations. Very scary. What is a change in beliefs? Flexibility of thinking. The opportunity to take a different position in new circumstances. The beliefs do not rule the world, not beliefs contribute to progress, but knowledge. And new knowledge simply obliges to change beliefs. I have never been sorry for Jordano Bruno, and I was quite on the side of Galileo. Why did I remember them? The first was not a victim of convictions, but was a victim of his own limitedness, and Galileo retained his life in order to be able to test and save science for descendants. A limited person is terrible that as a descending wheel stretches the time until the moment of reaching Goals. And time is the most valuable resource.

  4. And why should someone unwillingness to change is terrible for someone? This is a personal choice of a person. This is his problem! Or happiness! Nevertheless, even saying that “I will not change”, a person is freely and varying from what environment he falls into. A drop is sharpening a stone. Time to help this. And our fears are only our attitude to the choice of another person. It turns out that these are our problems.

  5. A person who does not change his beliefs (or rather a large percentage of such people) is terrible for those who want to build a society of people combed under one comb. In this case, it does not matter which one. Well, we take two opposite as an example – the society of the cult of consumption and the “green society” Bziky on the ecology. In my opinion, beliefs are still more than the totality of the information which a person has and the results of its analysis. On an example above: if a person wants to make a shakefchik with his own hands to save. But at the same time, I did not calculate the materials purchased in retail, the accessories and the tool missing it is cheaper – it is the inability to collect and analyze information. And if a person gives a special pleasure to see and use it with your own hands, this is the conviction that is contrary to the cult of consumption. Although the initial data and the result obtained are the same, the motives are different.

  6. A person cannot, in principle, initially his own beliefs. First, a person “takes on faith” everything that the parents raising him are told. So the foundations of his mind are formed. Later, with the help of his mind, he can check the information that he receives from other people. But still, he still has very little knowledge. Basically, everything he knows is what others told him and he “took it on faith.” His first own beliefs are the knowledge that a person received in the process of education. He considers some of this knowledge as “true” and no longer requiring any evidence, and some are those that have not yet been proven, but he is inclined to consider them true. (for example, religion or atheism). The person of a person is constantly developing and very often a person thinks about those issues that he considered already solved and “not requiring any evidence.” For example, what is “time”, what is a “mind”. Thinking about such issues, all the beliefs of a person often change, because There are no finally proven solutions to these issues yet. And having solved these issues for yourself, you often feel that you see this world better, although a little differently than before. If a person never changes his beliefs, it seems that he simply does not bother to think about this world.

  7. Good question! For 76 years I have not changed my beliefs and do not know what I am “terrible”? And most importantly, no one told me that I was “terrible” with something! Probably – “afraid” … (Interesting, and believers, because they don’t change their beliefs either?) However, if they prove to me that my conviction is incorrect, “what the hell is not joking” (I am about: “if they prove to me” ), I can change … Information for thought: a person who has no opinion, or constantly changing it, is called: 1 – “man of a weather vane”. Such people change their opinion, depending on the circumstances. Such a person cannot be considered or called “reliable”. Some do so specifically when they want to please anyone. This can be done for a variety of purposes: someone does this for their increase, and someone for new connections. Each person has his own reasons. 2 -“Reasonable Man”. This is normal, logical and reasonable behavior, to change your beliefs depending on the situation, so that the situation is more favorable for a person. These are the pies …
