Hello. We know that the Force can have a strong influence on the weakminded. But what exactly is the meaning of the term "weakminded"? I must admit, I'm not really sure about it. Let's take a look at some possible meanings: 1) Unintelligent. This doesn't seem to fit. Intelligent people *can* be naive, despite their intelligence. They also can be manipulated. Intelligence isn't always and necessarily a working protection regarding these dangers. Also, people can be extremely headstrong or unsteady, regardless of their intelligence. Some people are unsteady, *because* they are intelligent. 2) Fearful. This also doesn't seem to fit. Anakin is extremely fearful. And Will Graham from the novel "Red Dragon" is even more fearful. It is said that fear is his main-motivation. But I would never call him weakminded. 3) Obedient. At the first moment, this seems like a good candidate. However, the Shaolin and the Samurai are extremely obedient. And who would ever call them weakminded? I have no conclusion to this problem. That's why I started this thread. In the Star Wars Galaxy, being weakminded or not is an important issue, but what does "weakminded" mean?
