You might be trapped in your own little world, but who cares?Some things are subjective (Do oranges taste good?) while others are not (What is the relationship between a circle's circumference and its diameter?)As for who cares, I'd say any-one trying to understand another person has to, and "we" tend to do so without thinking. Of course, there are matters where it can be difficult to discern fact from opinion - that is what research is for."Everyhing" is only subjective if one is willing to treat Everything (<-notice upper case E) as a subject.
