It would be healthier for a mind to be in a more open-minded social environment, though a mind would still thrive in a close-minded social environment as well. Of course, you can expose yourself to the right types of environment to get the best effect.

Necessity is the mother of invention.

Nope. An open-minded environment will reduce the "rebellion" factor, whereas a close-minded environment has less free thought. It's a bit of a paradox, but no environment is better than the next.

No, I think it really depends on how the person uses their environment.

I think it works either way. I'm going to go out of my way to give my children the best opportunities to be freethinkers.
