Do you tend to view the world more objectively or subjectively?
These days, both Western and Eastern philosophers agree that there is no such thing as a human being who can view things objectively. We can be more rational and eliminate the bias we see, but we always have our own subjective viewpoint.
Rather than objectivity, which implies one reality we can all see, and one "right" evaluation of it, we can seek "intersubjectivity," where we honor the views of other as well as our own, and seek a meta-framework that explains and embraces all subjective views. Or, in plain English, each person's view of life is a story, and we each create meaning.
I have my story and meanings, and I seek to honor the lives, stories, and meanings of all others - and not just people, but everything!
