Depends on the people, what the opinion is about, and what advice might be needed.

This is very general. I had trouble answering this.

Generally speaking, extremely valuable. However, it depends heavily on the person and the topic. The opinion of someone who is well informed on a topic is generally more valuable than the opinion of someone who is not, with occasional exceptions. Or, the opinions of people to whom a topic is particularly relevant are more valuable than the opinions of people who have no stake in the matter. And if you are a person who has to make an important decision and you don't know much about the particular topic, it's very important that you get good opinions and advice on the matter.

It depends greatly on the person in question and the subject at hand.

Maybe I could have phrased this better. I think in most cases, people's opinions aren't that valuable (e.g. most people aren't that well-informed on most topics). So, I would say generally, opinion isn't that valuable.

They are infinitely valuable, to me, in so far as I believe in free speech, but beyond that, it depends on the opinion.

How often do you want to hear random strangers' opinions about your lifestyle choices?

Individual opinions have little value in the grand scheme of things, unless that individual is particularly powerful. But the opinion of The People can bring down governments, start or end wars, bring about social change... and surely that is a valuable power?
