It means that you've evaluated all of the data or inputs in a logical and unbiased manner and you can back up your view with solid, logically sound reasoning or even hard data.
For example. I could objectively say that it's warmer at the equator than in Canada. All I have to do is get out some temperature data over the course of a full year and show that on average, Brazil is a hell of a lot warmer than Canada.
In contrast, SUBJECTIVE views are biased, or unsubstantiated. They are just based on how your see things or perceive things.
I might say that Iceland is warmer than Brazil if i only saw a picture, because it's usually very sunny and bright in Iceland, but it's often cloudy and rainy in Brazil.
Subjective views can be correct, or they can be wrong. But they are usually either wrong, or flawed.
OBjective views can also be wrong. But at least you have data and logic behind you.
