Thank you very much.
I'm having problems in finding antonyms for the following adjectives describing personality. Can you check my list, please? I need to fing synonyms for "nosy" and an antonym for "sensible", "sensitive".

1) How do you call someone who likes teasing his schoolmates?

active/passive
brave/cowardly
cheerful/down-hearted, sad
clever/stupid
confident(doubtful
dermined/indecisive
friendly/hostile
generous/ungenerous, mean
intolerant/tolerant
mean/generous
naive/experienced
nosy (intrusive, prying, meddlesome) /dicreet
practical/idealistic
sensible/???
sensitive/??
serious/joking
shy/extrovert
tolerant/intolerant (narrow-minded?)

  • English -

    Please try: http://thesaurus.com

    Main Entry: nosy
    Part of Speech: adjective
    Definition: curious; prying
    Synonyms: eavesdropping, inquisitive, inquisitorial, inquisitory, interested, interfering, intermeddling, intrusive, meddlesome, personal, searching, snooping, snoopy
    Antonyms: indifferent, uncaring, unconcerned, uninterested


    I'm only looking at the 2 words - nosy & sensible.

    sensitive = impassive, insensitive, thick-skinned, unsusceptible

    sensible = impassive, insensitive, thick-skinned, unsusceptible

    By now, with the links I have given you for synonyms and this one for synonyms, antonyms, etc. you should be able to do your own looking!
