Students always here these words "Objective" and "Subjective". A look at the differences between "Objective: and "Subjective".


We always come across these two words in our daily life "objective" and "subjective". Children who appear for various examinations have "objective" type question papers to solve. On the other hand, the term "subjective" is also commonly used when referring to words like 'rich', 'poor' and 'cleaver', etc.
Be it "objective" or "subjective" these words are used for convincing the other people about things or values in our life. When one is referring to an "objective" thing, there are certain patterns and that cannot be crossed or changed as they have fixed characteristics.
As far as a "subjective" term is concerned, it can be molded in any form by the speaker. One can speak about the positive of a certain thing or the downside as well. The interesting part is, when the subjectivity of that thing is taken into account, they can be turned and twisted according our thoughts.
For an objective term, it is possible to provide concrete facts that cannot be challenged as they themselves are the proof. That is why there are no options when it comes to answering questions that are related to objective type.
The facts that can be scientifically and also mathematically proven generally fall in this category. Scientific conclusions are mostly in the objective category. This has concrete and physical evidence as well.
As far as subjective terms are concerned, they can be changed by the thoughts of the people. The opinions regarding a certain subject can be different for different people and this is ever the subjectivity comes into play.
It is very easy to remember when you can be subjective or objective. Like, you can understand this as an 'object'. As you can touch or hold an object physically, so you can understand the 'objectivity'. It can be anything that you can hold, see and touch in real life.
Subjectivity is exactly the opposite. As you can experience a smile, anger, hatred, love and affection but cannot hold or touch them, all of such feelings and experiences fall in the 'subjectivity'. You can see a smiling child, but cannot see smile, you can see an angry man, but cannot see the anger, so these are all examples of subjective feelings.
