In the past, we have presented the P trait as not only the source of organization, neatness, etc., but also as a "bridling agent" that tempers "unbridled narcissism" and "unbridled aggression". Part of this bridling is the tendency of the P trait to be associated with the formation and respect of boundaries, whether they be physical boundaries or conceptual ones.
Thus, to individuals lacking the P trait, boundaries may not be a high priority. Such individuals may not only tend to ignore real boundaries (running over the edge of your property with a tractor, as if it were an extension of theirs), but also tend to embrace unconventional concepts (as in the thought processes of empaths). So, this would imply that open-mindedness in this sense would be more characteristic of non-P individuals.
