Opinions: Ally or Enemy

December 16, 2015

In today’s episode, we discuss when opinions can be helpful, and when they can be harmful.


Mentioned in today's episode

  • When opinions are a good thing:
    • When the evidence for a given topic is inaccessible or doesn't exist
    • When the person with the opinion has significant experiential knowledge
    • When the subject of the work is primarily representative of a person's opinion or expression
  • When are opinions a bad thing?
    • When an opinion is positioned as an objective truth.
    • When the opinion of an individual devalues any other individual's perspective without objective reasoning
    • When opinion is used as a substitute for research.
