A take is an opinion that has no aspiration to a belief,

an impression that never hardens into a position.
Its lightness is its appeal. It is provisional, evanescent, a move in a game, an accredited shallowness, a bulwark against a pause in the conversation. A take is expected not to be true but to be interesting, and even when it is interesting it makes no troublesome claim upon anybody’s attention. - - The Atlantic
