    Default Opinions [RAW input!]

    what on earth are opinions?
    Im baffled, my current theses is, they are an excuse for premature decisions, which is in itself understandable how mental laziness manifests in larger quantities at non-INJ types.

    I solved the question i intended for you? Oh well =S..

    Maybe im anyways more inteerestehd in hearing those opinions than the fact i already have. Isnt my stance paradoxical? =X

    i guess thats the point of opinions, hopping boards for my intuition.

    Im not sure what you expect to receive....

    A well thought out answer?

    A guffaw?

    Or a jab on the nose?

    Opinions are the result of individualism. If you don't like opinions, go live in a communist environment.

    i already do, for the second time. In first one it took a two months to purify the nonsense, although one hirrible dogma they kept.

    In this new one, the Te's are much more strick and unbending, i even asked an enfj working here to explain one utter nonsencial thing and he attempted to make it seem sencial but failed, at least in my eyes.

    To me an "opinion" occurs when you take a stance on something but you are aware it is only your personal truth and/or you know there is no clear objective answer. For example, religion is an opinion in my eyes, because it's a personal decision. I think yes they can be excuses for premature decisions but a lot of times we HAVE to make decisions without all the information. So we do what we can.

    The nice thing about opinion is it's malleable. Fact is less so.

    Premature opinions are premature, but not all opinions are premature.

    Your thesis needs development. Perhaps refining it would be wise.

    I write language arts textbooks for 3rd-8th graders. I tell them that a fact is something that can be investigated and shown to be true or false (like "Helena is the capitol city of Montana"), and an opinion is something that can't be shown to be true or false (like "Helena is the most beautiful city in the United States"). Everyone has opinions, but some people think theirs are facts. Those people, in my opinion, are goofy. Hope this helps.
