English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. insight

    Sharpness, acuteness, and insight, however keen, and penetration, however deep, fall short of the meaning of acumen, which implies also ability to use these qualities to advantage. There are persons of keen insight and great penetration to whom these powers are practically useless. Acumen is sharpness to some purpose, and belongs to a mind that is comprehensive as well as keen. Cleverness is a practical aptitude for study or learning. Insight and discernment are applied oftenest to the judgment of character; penetration and perspicacity to other subjects of knowledge. Sagacity is an uncultured skill in using quick perceptions for a desired end, generally in practical affairs; acumen may increase with study, and applies to the most erudite matters. Shrewdness is keenness or sagacity, often with a somewhat evil bias, as ready to take advantage of duller intellects. Perspicacity is the power to see clearly through that which is difficult or involved. We speak of the acuteness of an observer or a reasoner, the insight and discernment of a student, a clergyman, or a merchant, the sagacity of a hound, the keenness of a debater, the shrewdness of a usurer, the penetration, perspicacity, and acumen of a philosopher.

    Synonyms:

    Antonyms:
    bluntness, dulness, obtuseness, stupidity

    6 MYTHS ABOUT DATING OVER AGE 50, DEBUNKED Blaming outside factors, including you, does not count as taking responsibility. If they blame their partner or lack insight into their actions, chances are, they'll do it again, Sheri Meyers said. Why stay with a cheating spouse ? Dr. Paul Hokemeyer, a licensed marriage and couples therapist, told Fox News that couples who stay together after infidelity have compelling reasons to do so. They are invested in Your Relationship and don't want to throw away a history of success, the cheating event is either a one off occurrence or based on an implied understanding between partners. In other words, Sheri Meyers were both taking a break and agreed to date others at that time. 9 SIGNS SHE MAY BE CHEATING ON Sheri Meyers When a cheating spouse admits to being unfaithful, realizes the pain they've caused Sheri Meyers, and is willing to prove their commitment to the relationship every day, it is possible for a couple to heal and move past infidelity. Your Relationship will, no doubt, feel different. Your Relationship can find a new equilibrium, but Your Relationship will never go back to the way Your Relationship was before the cheating occurred. This is because our brain is wired to retain strong emotional experiences, Hokemeyer said. The partners have to find a new normal. One that doesn't ignore that the betrayal occurred while simultaneously finding a place for it in the narrative of Your Relationship.

Most people ultimately know when Your Relationship has a solid foundation and a loving connection — they know if Your Relationship can survive an affair.

  4. Chris Harrison:

    This particular piece of work on the Teacup Galaxy has provided new insight into how the black holes [drive energy] in ordinary galaxies, they appear to be capable of driving jets of charged particles that collide into the gas. You could imagine the ‘jet’ as like a water cannon being driven into a crowd of people - the water cannon collides with the crowd and causes it to break up and disperse rapidly. In this analogy, the crowd represents the gas in the galaxy that is trying to form stars, but is destroyed by the jet.
