Subjective writing

When you’re writing subjectively, you’re not trying to hide your own opinion. A typical example of subjective writing is the argumentative essay, where you take a stance on some issue and then argue why you take that stance.

However, objective writing in the middle of a subjective essay can sometimes be a very powerful tool. When you’re presenting arguments or evidence from people who support you, sometimes it’s better to present their words in an objective way. By doing this, you reinforce to your reader that they have come to their conclusion by themselves, and have no direct connection with you, but still agree with you. Several people or groups arriving at the same conclusion independently of each other is even more convincing.
