point of you vs point of view : Common Errors in English

About point of you vs point of view

Your viewpoint on a subject is your “point of view,” not your “ point of you.” “Your” and “of you” mean the same thing, and combining the two makes little sense; but the expression really gets weird when it turns into “my point of you,” “her point of you,” “their point of you,” etc.

point of view Meaning(s)

  • (n) a mental position from which things are viewed
  • (n) the spatial property of the position from which something is observed
