Meaning of JMHO

What Does JMHO Mean?

JMHO (Just My Humble Opinion) is usually sent after a message to make the sender seem less authoritative and forthright. IMHO carries a connotation of "I'm not claiming this is a fact. It's just my opinion."

JMHO is often used by people with passive aggressive tendencies (i.e., people who hide their controlling nature with non-confrontational language). It is a synonym of the more common term IMHO.

JMHO is sometimes expanded to "Just My Honest Opinion". However, this is not a common definition. In this version, there is conflict between the words "Just" and "Honest". ("Just" weakens the intended strength of the assertion while "Honest" strengthens it.)
