The objective analysis versus the subjective analysis? The objective, reasonable interpretation by someone in the position of the parties involved and present as witness would assume. I seem to gravitate towards the subjective rather than the objective nature of the analysis. This has been my first real challenge during law school. It has occured to me that given the nature of my work as an information security practitioner, this tendancy may very well be a side effect of my work as I scour the virtual scene of some crime looking for clues. Every angle, every opportunity to circumvent, the subjective nature of information security problem solving. This does present another question. Are lawyers in general missing opportunities as a side effect of thier work? I think so.
