Objectivity means being able to assess what is real without being biased by self-interest, tribalism, agenda, ideology, or emotion. We think of objectivity as being particularly important in the work of scientists and judges, but in reality it is of value in any role that involves decision making. Without objectivity fairness and accuracy suffer, and far to easily we end up doing harm when we are trying to do good.
When we demonstrate an ability to be objective, other people seek our opinions, particularly in conflict situations. Our objectivity becomes a community resource.
