I’m not quick to profile or designate a label anyone.
I usually let people do that for themselves and if they say that they’re “ just a simple kinda person .“ then that’s their view.
Which does have various meanings so I can either assume or like I said I’ll wait and let them demonstrate their interpretation of themselves.
But everyone is different so one person’s description of the same thing my be to a degree different than what we believe it to be as well.
Honestly there’s nothing simple about being simple if you ask me
Not trying to impress or please anyone...don't need to...truthful...no games...what you see is what you get...
succinct in words and life to get a point across
Usually more intelligent than most...quiet and observant...
Unassuming...simple pleasures and needs...
"Simple-minded" springs to mind.
"In Mexican culture, calling a man simple is a big compliment," Elisabet, a girl I mentored, said. "It means he is humble and dependable."
In a scholarship essay, Elisabet had described herself as "simple." I suggested we look it up on Thesaurus.com.
"In English, the implication is 'simple-minded,'" I said. Instead Elisabet wrote:
"I am a modest girl with big dreams." That worked.
In June 2018, Elisabet graduated from expensive, private Gonzaga University debt-free. Renewable scholarships, grants and work study made that possible. Elisabet is studying to become a pediatrician.
Well...there is simple as in “plain and simple”, easily understood, and the opposite would be complex. I would think anyone who calls themselves simple is probably much more likely to be pretty complex and I would have to ask myself why they thought they needed to label themselves as the opposite.
