Question
Hi dear Samuel,
Pleas help me know the meaning of these expressions:
Subjective experience
Objective position

Answer
Hi Suren,

A subjective experience is one that involves personal interpretation. For example, you may witness an argument between two people and based on what you see and hear, you form a conclusion on who is "right." An objective position involves drawing conclusions based on facts. Interpretation is kept to a minimum. With the previous example, you would draw your conclusion on all of the facts available including those that go beyond what you saw and heard.

I hope this is helpful.
