please i want to know the name given to this idiomatic expression, "try to keep an open mind"
Do you mean that you'd like to know how to use this idiom?
If you tell someone to keep an open mind, you are asking them not to be prejudiced against the idea until they have listened to the facts and evidence.
For example, 'I know you don't usually like science fiction, but try to keep an open mind and go and watch the film anyway.'
