I'm defining worldy here as being knowledgeable and aware of different cultures, customs, and countries around the world.

Do you think it doesn't matter but can't do any harm? Do you think it's essential to have a better perspective of the world? Does it depend on what you want to do with your life? Do you consider yourself to be "worldly"?

It's important because it can help you in socialising.
It also helps you to avoid making a fool of yourself at times.

It's hard to gain perspective of the world beyond your own problems, opinions, ideas, and ultimately - reality - without experiencing how others perceive and react to life.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

I don't know if it's essential, but it doesn't hurt to have it. These days with the internet and cheap airline travel, you're far more likely than ever before to travel to a place with a very different culture, or meet people from that place. It's nice to know what to expect.

And even if you don't know much about other cultures, you shouldn't be closed-minded towards them and assume that your own culture is somehow superior.

It's only important if it makes the worldly person happy. If it doesn't, theres no point.

Theory is descriptive, not prescriptive.

Well yeah its pretty important because you should know about what is appriopriate for each situation which involve other countries and stuff.

Unimportant, pointless, and redundant. Just like healthcare, clothing and mathematics.

It's important, ignorance may be bliss but it helps in life to be more understanding of other cultures to avoid conflicts etc.

It's not important per se, but it is good quality to have, especially if you're going to be traveling a lot.

I consider myself to be relatively worldly.
My signature lacks content. It is, however, blue.

It's not really important, but it's definitely good to be so, so you can see other's perspective.
