Hello everyone,

According to my opinion, he is good for nothing.

Is this use of "according to " all right?

Thanks in advance.

    Not really, Akasaka. You would say "In my opinion, he is good for nothing" OR "According to John, he is good for nothing" OR "According to Suzy, he is good for nothing".

    You would use "according to" to ascribe the sentiment to John or Suzy (as individuals). You are not ascribing the sentiment to their opinion.
