The unpopular opinion here would be to like dogs more than cats while the popular opinion would be to like cats more than dogs.

Synonyms of "Opinion" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between opinions and feedback ?
A: Feedback is like "response." So in this sentence, feedback is better. People don't have to ask for you to give your opinion, but they will ask for feedback if they want it
Q: What is the difference between I'll stick to my opinion anyway. and I'll stand by my opinion anyway. ?
A: 'Stick to' and 'Stand by' are not synonymous. Although they can be used interchangeably in certain contexts, there are distinct differences between the insinuations.

Sticking to your opinion implies that you're not changing your mind and you're staying with the same opinion you had.

As for standing by your opinion, though it also means that you're not going to change your opinion, it implies that you're going to fervently support it.

The former comes across as more passive than the latter.

Eg.
Say whatever you want but I'll still stick to my opinion that X is better than Y. (proceeds to say little)
vs.
I will stand by my opinion that X is better than Y and I will debate you on that. (proceeds to argue / take a stand on the issue)
Q: What is the difference between opinion and view ?
A: An opinion is what you think about something/someone, and a view is how you see something/someone. This might sound a little confusing, and the two words are definitely similar. You will learn the difference better from experience I think.
Q: What is the difference between in my opinion and to my mind ?
A: This may be helpful: http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/81366/using-to-my-mind

They are synonymous. It is more common (in my opinion) to find "to my mind" in the middle of a sentence. These four sentences sound natural to me:

"In my opinion, that was the best movie of the year."
"That was, in my opinion, the best movie of the year."
"That was the best movie of the year in my opinion."
"That was, to my mind, the best movie of the year."

The other possibilities, where "to my mind" is at the beginning or the end of the sentence do not sound natural to me.

Additionally, I almost never use "to my mind" (in any form: spoken, written, casual, or formal). I believe it is more common in other dialects. My dialect is of the Midwest/Southern US.
Q: What is the difference between to agree with your opinion and to agree to your opinion ?
A: "Agree to your opinion" sounds unnatural to me.

I usually hear "agree to" with verbs, (e.g. "I agreed to run the event"). The only thing I can think of with a noun is "I agreed to the terms of service" or "I agreed to the terms of the contract."

Q: It's my opinion about "Today, many elementary school students have their own cell phones. Do you think they should be allowed to take their cell phones to school?"


I don't think that they should be allowed to take their cell phones to school.
One reason is that if they can use cell phones in school, they will not take communication with their friends because they will use it every time.
Also, if they can use it in schoolrooms, they can't concentrate their classes.
Even if it to ban during class that using cell phones on school rules, it is likely that some students break it.
For these reasons, I think they shouldn't be allowed to take it in school. does this sound natural?
