We were having dinner when we heard someone at the next table describe someone as "very opinionated." What exactly does that mean? When people do it, they generally imply something negative. But doesn't everyone have opinons? And why exactly would that be bad?

I know, right? I have asked that very question before. I agree that most often I have heard the term "opinionated" used in a negative context.

Seems to me it is a positive thing associated with the ability to think, make decisions, and communicate.

It's up there with "agenda". Somebody with an agenda is viewed negatively, but everybody has an agenda.
