Receptivity is our willingness to relax our boundaries and remain open and responsive to new ideas and experiences.
Receptivity is related to one of the five broad factors of personality, openness to experience.
Open people tend to think in broad and deep (rather than narrow and shallow) ways, and they tend to have permeable boundaries when it comes to consciousness and experience. Openness encourages diversity of thought, feeling, and action. Open people are likely to enjoy rich experiences, have broad interests, and be receptive to new ideas, information, and perspectives.
