Subjective vs Objective

Posted by Mohammad Hassan on February 24, 2013 at 8:20 PM Comments comments (0)

The difference between these terms is the difference between fact and opinion. Facts are provably true and, if intended to be objective, need to be balanced to allow the reader to make up his or her mind; opinions are subjective and biased and lead the reader towards the writer's judgment, i.e. opinions are intended to be persuasive.

 

An objective piece of information, therefore, needs either to be the whole truth and unbiased or balanced, whereas a subjective point of view is biased because it is either not the complete picture or it is merely a viewpoint or expression of feelings.

To look at something objectively means that emotions or personal opinions don't enter into it. So, for instance, if you know the fact that Jamate Islamli opppsed  having independent Bangladesh and someone says: "They are RAJAKAR" - that's an objective fact or statement.

 

Subjective - a subjective statement is something like "I would like war criminals to have the maximum punsihment". You may like it, but somebody else might not. They might avoide asking the same punishment for all individuals and politcal leaders from all parties.  So it's subjective - personal opinion is everything there.


photo vs image vs picture vs paints

The difference is almost zero because a picture is painted, an image can be moulded, a photo is taken by a camera but all portray something.

A photograph (often shortened to photo) is an image created by light falling on a light-sensitive surface, usually photographic film or an electronic imager such as a CCD or a CMOS chip.

An image (from Latin: imago) is an artifact, for example a two-dimensional picture, that has a similar appearance to some subject—usually a physical object or a person.

A picture, also called an image, is a group of colored points on a flat surface that looks the same as something else. For example, a picture can look the same as an object or a person. Pictures can also be drawings, paintings or photographs. People who make such pictures are called artists, photographers or painters. Pictures are very helpful. Sometimes people say pictures are worth a thousand words.

You take a picture, but when its developed/printed out it becomes an image. Picture is more of an everyday word, whereas image is used in media applications, but has found its way into everyday language.

Well a painting you have to paint with a paintbrush and paint. Also most paintings are painted on canvas. On the other hand, a drawing you draw with colored pencils or most other art utensils.

 

t-shirt vs polo shirt

A t-shirt is usually only made of cotton, with a simple design and doesn't have a collar.

 

A polo shirt is usually a polyester/cotton blend (but can be found in cotton only). Polo shirts usually have collars and button up near the neck. Breast pockets are also common as are a horizontal striped pattern in the fabric.
