You probably have to distinguish the person who has a "the dog is a commodity" attitude vs "I don't know any better" when you're trying to decide whether the person can establish themselves as credible.
And of course, being open to suggestions and advice, and eager to learn would be something I'd look for in a person trying to climb out of BYB status, because (rather obviously, I guess) a person won't be able to get out of the ignorant stage unless they are willing to change.
