I don’t think that an open heart is the same as agreeableness. One component of an open heart is being sincere, and there are numerous cases where being agreeable comes by being insincere. So while someone with an open heart may well be agreeable, being agreeable doesn’t necessarily mean having an open heart — and can actually get in the way of being open in some cases.
