Subjective vs Objective

Posted by Mohammad Hassan on February 24, 2013 at 8:20 PM

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.
