confused

I've always wondered, what is the difference between judging and having an opinion?

I don't want to "judge" but I can't help having an opinion.

Here's Webster's definition of the verb...

verb (used with object)

6.
to pass legal judgment on; pass sentence on (a person): The court judged him guilty.
7.
to hear evidence or legal arguments in (a case) in order to pass judgment; adjudicate; try: The Supreme Court is judging that case.
8.
to form a judgment or opinion of; decide upon critically: You can't judge a book by its cover.
9.
to decide or settle authoritatively; adjudge: The censor judged the book obscene and forbade its sale.
10.
to infer, think, or hold as an opinion; conclude about or assess: He judged her to be correct.

if you're referring to the biblical admonition to "judge not"... it's usually misquoted -- the rest of the sentence is ..."lest you be judged by the same standard". in other words, don't have a double standard. but everyone should use their discernment to decide I something is right and acceptable. we all make hundreds of "judgments" every day!

Judging...she looks ridiculous in that outfit.

Opinion...I would not wear that I think it looks ridiculous

Anyway one is aimed at the person judging them. One is an opinion of the outfit.

That's my take anyway

 I tend to think of it in this way, too.

Quoting sam12796:

Judging...she looks ridiculous in that outfit.

Opinion...I would not wear that I think it looks ridiculous

Anyway one is aimed at the person judging them. One is an opinion of the outfit.

That's my take anyway
