Definition :

Views are symptoms of conditioning, rather than neutral alternatives individuals can dispassionately choose. A conditioned mind is bound by greed, obsession, acceptance, attachment, and lust of view.

Wrong View creates a mind that sees objects differently instead of seeing as realities.

Wrong View often refers to the negative effect of attachment to speculative or fixed views, dogmatic opinions, or even correct views if not known to be true by personal verification.

Wrong View represents one of the Seven Latent Tendencies.
