Opinion VS Judgment

There is a lot of discussion on Judgment so I thought I would try to clear things up.  I for one am not one for personal judgment.  I have never walked a mine in your shoes so I will not Judge you.  I do however have an Opinion.  God gave me a brain and I intend to use it.

On a lot of post I have been noticing people throwing out the "please don't judge" card, when in reality they are saying "I don't really want your opinion if you disagree with me".

So here is the definition of both:

Judgment: The operation of the mind involving comparison and discrimination by which a knowledge of the values and relations of thins whether of moral qualities, intellectual concepts, logical propositions or material facts.

Opinion:  A view formed about something , not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.

So when I post I fully expect your Opinion good, bad or indifferent.  I taken into account everyone has a bad day and that, and that you really might think I am an Idiot, but that is okay it is your Opinion and you are entitled to it.

Just wanted to put this out there... Bump if ya agree and feedback is always welcome!!!

  • I agree with you on this. The problem that I find is that some people can express an opposing opinion without being very rude about it. I have no problem with differing opinions, that is how the world turns, but some people just don't know how to voice theirs without coming off as very rude.

  • Agreed. However that doesn't mean you can be rude and cruel about it. For example, if someone asks a question on how to handle something, saying "I wouldn't since I would never let that happen it's all your fault aghfgdlagdjgoair" is judging whereas "I've never been in that situation. If I were, here's how I'd handle it" is an opinion. If you can't give advice to the question asked, don't answer. It's not that difficult.
