  1. judgment

    Idea is in Greek a form or an image. The word signified in early philosophical use the archetype or primal image which the Platonic philosophy supposed to be the model or pattern that existing objects imperfectly embody. This high sense has nearly disappeared from the word idea, and has been largely appropriated by ideal, tho something of the original meaning still appears when in theological or philosophical language we speak of the ideas of God. The present popular use of idea makes it to signify any product of mental apprehension or activity, considered as an object of knowledge or thought; this coincides with the primitive sense at but a single point — that an idea is mental as opposed to anything substantial or physical; thus, almost any mental product, as a belief, conception, design, opinion, etc., may now be called an idea. Compare FANCY; IDEAL.

    Synonyms:
    apprehension, archetype, belief, conceit, concept, conception, design, fancy, fantasy, idea, ideal, image, imagination, impression, model, notion, opinion, pattern, plan, purpose, sentiment, supposition, theory, thought

    Antonyms:
    actuality, fact, reality, substance

How to use judgment in a sentence?

  1. Kendall Coffey:

    They better be darn ready to show a detailed file of all of the other steps they took before they overruled the [lead investigator’s] judgment, the person in the best position to determine whether or not there was probably cause to arrest George Zimmerman.”

  2. Carlo Jaeger:

    You need a judgment call for these things, and this 2-degree thing was a judgment call that happened at the interface of science and policy.

  3. Dee W. Hock:

    Never hire or promote in your own image. It is foolish to replicate your strength and idiotic to replicate your weakness. It is essential to employ, trust, and reward those whose perspective, ability, and judgment are radically different from yours. It is also rare, for it requires uncommon humility, tolerance, and wisdom.

  4. An NTSB official:

    The pilot took pride in these positions with both the client and Island Express. They had a good relationship with the client and likely did not want to disappoint them by not completing the flight. This self-induced pressure can adversely affect pilot decision-making and judgment.

  5. Finn Wentworth:

    I am a long-time supporter of Governor Christie. In that process, I have learned to respect his opinion and his judgment, he’s a results-oriented person, and frankly I am now looking at Donald Trump because of Governor Christie’s endorsement today.
