Objective and subjective are two common—and commonly confused—words used to describe, among other things, information and perspectives.

The difference between objective information and subjective information is that the former is based on facts, while the latter is based on feelings or opinions.

Below, we’ll talk about the difference between objective and subjective, how to use them in writing, and when each one is appropriate.

The difference between objectiveand subjective

The basic difference between objective and subjective information is that objectiveinformation is based on facts, while subjective information, or a subjective perspective, is based on opinion, emotion, or feelings.

The line between the two seems simple on paper, but in practice, their meanings can blur. Why? The main reason is that people who use these words are just that: people. And people have backgrounds, experiences, emotions, and biases that can show up in subtle ways. Often, even if we think we’re being objective, there may be subjective influences at play.

Definition of objective

Objective means not influenced by personal feelings or opinions in considering or representing facts.

An objective perspective refers to a viewpoint or approach that is unbiased, impartial, and based on facts and verifiable evidence.

For example, this is an objective statement:

Water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Water has an objective temperature that it must reach in order to boil, which can be quantified, tested, and proved over and over again.

What is objectivity in writing?

In writing, objectivity is found in works that present facts and their verifiable evidence. Examples of objective writing are research papers, instruction manuals, and academic essays. These types of writing strive for accuracy and to create a foundation of knowledge.

Definition of subjective

Subjective means based on, or influenced by, personal feelings, tastes, or opinions. A subjective perspective can also be called a personal perspective or an individual point of view. Subjective views do not have to be provable or grounded in fact, though they may incorporate facts. For example:

The frosting on that cake makes it too sweet. 

This is a subjective take on cake. What one person considers “too sweet” is based entirely on their personal preferences. The cake might not be sweet enough for some and just right for others.

What is subjectivity in writing?

In writing, subjectivity refers to the expression of a writer’s personal opinions, feelings, beliefs, and perspectives.

Subjective writing often involves first-person pronouns (Imemy) and emotional language, as the writer shares their thoughts and reactions openly. It can be found in various forms of writing, including personal essays, memoirs, creative fiction, and opinion pieces.

Here are examples of subjective writing elements:

Personal pronouns:

  • I believe
  • In my opinion
  • From my perspective

Evocative adjectives

  • The painting evoked a sense of peace for me.
  • The novel was thought-provoking.

Value judgments:

  • That was the best movie of the year.
  • That concert was disappointing.

In grammar, subjective means related to the subject of a sentence. That’s a different definition from the one we’re using here. You can read more about subjective and objective cases in grammar here.

How to use objective vs. subjective

Being able to tell the difference between objective and subjective information will make you a better communicator, decision-maker, and problem-solver. Depending on what industry you’re in, you may lean more heavily on one type of information than the other.

Objective information is important in fields that rely on facts and evidence, such as scientific research, journalism, and law.

It’s important to note that achieving complete objectivity is a difficult task, since everyone is informed by their backgrounds and experiences. While people in these disciplines should strive for objectivity, they should also consider how their experiences may affect the product of their work.

For example, members of a jury are instructed to analyze a case objectively and base their conclusions only on the facts presented. However, the court system can’t avoid the fact that jury members are human beings, and every human brings their own experiences and biases to a situation. That’s why courts have a jury selection process that attempts to eliminate jurors whose personal experiences may cloud their judgment.

Subjective perspectives, on the other hand, play a vital role in art, literature, and therapy, since these disciplines allow, or even require, individuals to share their unique experiences and emotions.

Examples of objective vs. subjective

The art critic acknowledged that the only objective parts of his assessment were the painting’s title and the artist’s name, while everything else was subjective, influenced by his extreme distaste for the color green.

The tourism survey aimed to collect both objective data, like what time of year the participant visited, and subjectivefeedback, like whether they had a good time, to gain a comprehensive understanding of their experience at the resort.

When discussing controversial topics, it’s essential to remain objective so you don’t let subjective biases influence your argument.

In the book review, the critic provided an objective summary of the plot and style, while also sharing their subjectivethoughts on the novel’s emotional impact.

The journalist strived to present the news objectively, reporting only the facts she collected without injecting subjectiveopinions or interpretations.

Objective vs. subjective FAQs

What do objective and subjective mean?

Objective means verifiable information based on facts and evidence. Subjective means information or perspectives based on feelings, opinions, or emotions.

What are examples of subjective and objective?

This is an example of subjective information: Lemon cake is the best dessert in the world.

This is an example of objective information: Lemons have high concentrations of vitamin C.

When should you use objective vs. subjective?

Use objective when presenting facts that you can prove with irrefutable evidence. Use subjective when presenting a point of view, perspective, or opinion.


Understanding the Cabalist Jewish “Left vs Right” Charade

(left, Otto Kahn, 1867-1934) 

“We Control Both Left & Right” — Kuhn Loeb Banker 

In a candid dinner conversation after WW1, Kuhn Loeb partner Otto Kahn 
was asked why the Capitalist bankers supported Communism. 
He replied they both have “an identical purpose, 

the remaking 

of the world from above by the control of riches, [Right] 

and from below by revolution [Left.]” They are all Freemasons (Cabalists.) 

Their final goal is the deification of the Rothschild banking cartel posing as 

representatives of the Jewish people. 
Hence we have the Communist faction on the Left (globalist, homosexual, migration, US Demonrats, Canada, EU, Sweden) and the  

Zionist faction on the Right (nationalist, heterosexual, US GOP, Brazil, Hungary.) Israel is at the fulcrum. No nationalist is ever critical of Israel. 

“We shall purify the idea [of God] by identifying it with the nation of Israel, which has become its own Messiah. The advent of it will be facilitated by the final triumph of Israel… ” by Henry Makow Ph.D.
(Revised from Oct. 19, 2011, and June 12, 2021) 

Otto Kahn, (1869-1934) was a partner with Jacob Schiff and Paul Warburg in America’s most influential investment bank Kuhn Loeb . 


Thus, it is worth recalling what he said about the Illuminati’s Jewish strategy.

In his book Geneva Versus Peace (1937,) the Comte de St. Aulaire, who was the French ambassador to London from 1920-24, recalled a dinner conversation with Otto Kahn which took place shortly after WWI. This shocking expose is fast disappearing down the memory hole.  

Asked why bankers would back Bolshevism, a system supposedly inimical to private ownership, Kahn tugged on his enormous cigar and explained that the bankers create apparent opposites to “remake the world” according to their specifications:

“You say that Marxism is the very antithesis of capitalism, which is equally sacred to us. It is precisely for this reason that they are direct opposites to one another, that they put into our hands the two poles of this planet and allow us to be its axis. These two contraries, like Bolshevism and ourselves, find their identity in the International. [Presumably, he means the Comintern.]

“These opposites … meet again in the identity of their purpose and end in the remaking of the world from above by the control of riches, and from below by revolution. 

“Our mission consists in promulgating the new law and in creating a God, that is to say in purifying the idea of God and realizing it, when the time shall come. We shall purify the idea by identifying it with the nation of Israel, which has become its own Messiah. The advent of it will be facilitated by the final triumph of Israel…

“Our essential dynamism makes use of the forces of destruction and forces of creation but uses the first to nourish the second…Our organization for revolution is evidenced by destructive Bolshevism and for construction by the League of Nations which is also our work. 

“Bolshevism is the accelerator and the League is the brake on the mechanism of which we supply both the motive force and the guiding power.  

“What is the end? It is already determined by our mission. It is formed of elements scattered throughout the whole world, but cast in the flame of our faith in ourselves. We are a League of Nations which contains the elements of all others…Israel is the microcosm and the germ of the city of the future.”   

 People who presume to take the place of God are Satanists. Satanists redefine reality and morality, turning them upside down. They seek a worldwide political, economic and cultural monopoly institutionalized in a world government. 

This is achieved by a Hegelian dialectical process of creating adversaries (thesis-antithesis) and achieving a synthesis that corresponds to their goals. In the process, potential opponents are eliminated.


In the Red Symphony revelation, insider Christian Rakovsky showed how Communism and Capitalism were part of this dialectical process. In each case, the Illuminati Jewish banking cartel controls all wealth and power. 

“In Moscow, there is Communism: in New York capitalism. It is all the same as the thesis and antithesis. Analyze both. Moscow is subjective Communism but [objectively] State capitalism. New York: Capitalism is subjective, but Communism objective. A personal synthesis, truth: the Financial International, the Capitalist Communist one. ‘They.’ “

In the USSR, the State owned the corporations and the bankers owned the State, i.e. State Capitalism. The US also has Communism objectively because the same bankers control most of the corporations.

Of course, this is consistent with the famous 1954 quote from Rowan Gaither, 1909-1961, (left) President of the Ford Foundation: “We operate here under directives which emanate from the White House… The substance of the directives under which we operate is that we shall use our grant-making power to alter life in the United States such that we can comfortably be merged with the Soviet Union.” 


We are in the final stages of a long-term conspiracy by Cabalist Jewish bankers and their Masonic lackeys to erect a world police state and to control us by fraud and force (their watchwords.)This has been achieved by a contrived “dialectical process” best exemplified by World War Two and the Cold War where they fabricated and financed the adversaries.  

Domestically, the Illuminati dialectic is mirrored by George Soros who funds the left, and the Koch Brothers who fund and control the right.  
Both are Illuminati Jews. The radical Left and Islam are also funded by corporations through the Tides foundation.  You can bet that this funding extends to media control through ownership or advertising. It also extends to universities, foundations and think tanks. 

Mass protests like Occupy Wall Streetare part of this false dialectic. This would be real if they demanded 1. Nationalizing the Fed, creation of debt-free currency and disowning that portion of the national debt created by book entry. 2. Independent investigation of 9-11 and prosecution of those responsible for the attack and the cover-up. 3. All national political campaigns be publicly funded.  For the price of one battle cruiser, we could have real democracy. 4. Media monopolies be broken up. 5. NATO (Rothschild) Interventions be stopped. As is, popular resistance is a banker Punch and Judy Puppet Show.     

The Libertarian Movement and the anti-Communist movements of the 1950’s were similarly motivated. We have no real political freedom, just as we have no real culture. Everything is designed to advance the NWO agenda, a total economic, political and cultural monopoly by the Illuminati bankers.

Otto Kahn also exemplifies how these bankers create reality by controlling what passes for culture. Kahn financed many movies and virtually created New York’s Metropolitan Opera. He was responsible for introducing Stanislavski, Nijinski, the Abbey Players, the Moscow Art Theater, and practically every other important personage and event in the most vigorous era of American theatrical history. He subsidized, sponsored, and had close relationships with Toscanini, Caruso, Chaliapin, Pavlova, Pirandello, Eugene O’Neill, Paul Robeson, Grace Moore, and hundreds of other artists whose names are now part of that history.

Apparent to all with eyes to see, their satanic agenda includes destroying marriage and family and mainstreaming satanism, homosexuality, pornography, promiscuity, pederasty, and incest.
