Describing yourself and others II. Personality.

Describing yourself and others II. Personality.

¡Hola! A couple of weeks ago we learnt to describe people physically on this post and today we're going to learn how to describe personalities!

Just like in the other post, the only difference describing yourself or other people is the verb, so that's the only thing you need to change!

ok, let's go!

Adjectives

serio/a - serious
alegre - cheerful
entusiasta - enthusiastic

generoso/a - generous
avaricioso/a - greedy

humilde - humble
arrogante - arrogant

ambicioso/a -ambitious
conformista -conformist

inteligente - intelligent
listo/a - clever
capaz - capable
tonto/a - silly
idiota - idiot
estúpido - stupid

misterioso/a - mysterious
transparente - transparent
complicado/a - complicated
simple - simple
sencillo/a - natural, straight-forward

sensible - sensitive
insensible - insensitive
cruel - cruel
frío/a - cold
práctico/a - practical

realista - realistic
soñador/soñadora - dreamer

impulsivo/a - impulsive
calmado/a - calm

racional - rational
irracional - irrational

sensato/a - sensible
responsable - responsible
irresponsable - irresponsible

maduro - mature
inmaduro - inmature
infantil - childish

inocente - innocent
ingenuo/a - naive
desconfiado/a - wary, distrustful
cauto/a - cautious
escéptico/a - sceptic

cuidadoso/a - careful / tidy
desordenado/a - messy

honesto/a - honest
mentiroso/a - liar

How do I say "I am cautious" or "he's cheerful" then?

Just start with:
Soy - I am
Eres - you are
Es - He/she is
Somos - we are
sois - you guys are
son - they are

Examples:
Soy cuidadoso (if I'm a man) or Soy cuidadosa (if I'm a woman).

Es inmaduro (if he's a man) or Es inmadura (she's a woman).

Somos honestos (if we're men) or Somos honestas (if we're woman).

And that's it!
Just put those two things together (verb and adjective) and you can describe anybody.
