Tolerance for Ambiguity

The willingness in an unfamiliar and unscripted situation to take the time to try to understand what is occurring and/or appropriate. Those with a low tolerance for ambiguity seek information primarily to support their own beliefs. Those with a high tolerance for ambiguity seek objective information from all participants primarily to gain an understanding of the whole situation and to perceive and predict accurately the behavior of others.
