Separating facts from opinions is a critical component of good decision making. Facts are defined as "statements supported by verifiable evidence." In this course, we'll discuss the different types of facts, and how careful observation of hard evidence is essential to making good choices. Opinions are beliefs or personal judgements that cannot be supported by verifiable evidence. We'll look at the various types of opinions, and the importance of knowing how to differentiate between what is factual and what is opinion-based.
