does leaving a hinged door open create additional pressure on the hinge?

This is a low stakes question about... hinges, I guess, and/or doors.

Various members of my family leave shower doors, cabinet doors etc, open.

I feel like I've been told that leaving a door open like this puts more weight on the hinge, and will ultimately cause it to fail. But as I look at it, I can't see why that would be. It's not like it's supported on the bottom when it's closed. Seems like the weight of the door is always on the hinge. The angle's different, though, obviously.

Is leaving a door open actually harder on the hinge, or not?
