    • To be impartial, you almost have to be completely without an opinion about something.  Let’s face it, most of us form an opinion about nearly everything.

      To me, being impartial/unbiases means reserving your opinion completely until you’ve heard all the facts.

    • I do agree that it is hard for most. One thing i have also noticed that a lot of times people will start a discussion with asking for someones opinion and the really just want someone to listen, and to remain unbias or impartial too. We live in a world that emphaizes the need to express. /it is hard to then turn around and do the opposite

    • A couple of days ago, I had a nasty experience at jury duty.  It was a criminal case where this guy had 4 charges against him—burglary, selling drugs, being on drugs and rape.  

      I told judge that my sister was robbed at gun point several years ago and was almost killed, also that my boyfriend is a police officer.  They told me that what happened to my sister was completely irrelevant to this case and if I could be TOTALLY UNBIASED.  I told them it was a difficult case, and I couldn’t guarantee.  So, the judge and lawyer tore me apart and humiliated me in front of everyone until I agreed to be unbiased.  I told them the answer is still “I don’t know“.  

      Geez!!!! I thought they were going to throw me in jail for being honest!!!!! I told them if I said I could be TOTALLY unbiased, that I would be lying.
