English Synonyms and Antonyms
A candid statement is meant to be true to the real facts and just to all parties; a fair statement is really so. Fair is applied to the conduct; candid is not; as, fair treatment, "a fair field, and no favor." One who is frank has a fearless and unconstrained truthfulness. Honest and ingenuous unite in expressing contempt for deceit. On the other hand, artless, guileless, naive, simple, and unsophisticated express the goodness which comes from want of the knowledge or thought of evil. As truth is not always agreeable or timely, candid and frank have often an objectionable sense; "to be candid with you," "to be perfectly frank," are regarded as sure preludes to something disagreeable. Open and unreserved may imply unstudied truthfulness or defiant recklessness; as, open admiration, open robbery. There may be transparent integrity or transparent fraud. Sincere applies to the feelings, as being all that one's words would imply.
aboveboard, artless, candid, fair, frank, guileless, honest, impartial, ingenuous, innocent, naive, open, sincere, straightforward, transparent, truthful, unbiased, unprejudiced, unreserved, unsophisticated
Candid in debate; candid to or toward opponents; candid with friend or foe; to be candid about or in regard to the matter.
