Jump to: navigation, search

Weak mindedness is the state of being easily impressionable or possessing a weak sense of self-will, judgement or conviction.[1]

A weak minded individual's opinion may be easily swayed by propaganda or emotional manipulation tactics, as they do not possess an adequate ability to judge or discern the quality of an assertion, or they may exhibit a lack of discipline.[citation needed]

Weak mindedness can result from several factors, including but not limited to lack of education, lack of critical thinking skills, lack of interpersonal experience or understanding, or developmental disability.
