Thanks for coming to my TED Talk.
If you happen to like the way thing A works more than you like the way thing B works, that does not make thing A objectively better. It is the opposite of that, it’s subjective.
Likewise if thing A has features that thing B doesn’t, and thing B has features that thing A doesn’t, and you like the features of thing A and wish they were in B, that still doesn’t make thing A objectively better.
|harder||objective||Mohs, Vickers, or Brinell hardness scale|
|better||subjective||no applicable unit of measurement|
|faster||objective||(any measureable unit) per time unit, e.g. meters per second, gallons per hour, frames per second; OR the time to complete a standardized action (e.g. booting into Windows)|
|stronger||objective||maximum load that can be lifted (kg, lb, etc), material breaking strain (MPa/psi), etc.|
