Ingenuous and Disingenuous
Ever been conversing or writing and just can't seem to find the right word to express yourself? Or else have heard or have read a word and either have absolutely no idea what it means or else aren't sure? Sure, you have encountered it numerous times before, but have never really known the nuances of its meanings. Well, this section is created in order to reduce the number of those pesky words whose meaning has perhaps evaded your comprehension for so long.
Let's start with the words ingenuous and disingenuous. Now, I had heard these words used numerous times, yet, only had a nebulous idea of what they could mean, and for some reason never made an effort to make sure. In short, I could not use them with the certainty of precision. So, of course, I never use them at all.
Now, just recently, I heard a politician on YouTube brandished them confidently in reference to the present crisis involving Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The commentator referred to a key figure as being ingenuous. That convinced me that I needed to know exactly what the word means Below is a video that explains exactly what the words mean in various forms, such as noun, adverb, adjective etc.

Radrook Admin: Yes, sooner or later this entire website will disappear with everything posted on it for lack of finding someone to take over when I croak. But it won't be because you folks are refusing to respond. That I can guarantee.

Radrook Admin: That's one reason why I stopped providing long insights into the chess games I play. It's like speaking to the wall.

Radrook Admin: Funny how I can have approx. 400 people at one point browsing, and not one of them wants to give feedback nor participate in any way manner or form. Not even a simple click with a like.

Radrook Admin: Funny how these discussion forums were all the rage once until Twitter and YouTube and other such discussion venues came along.

Radrook Admin: I wish visitors would say something instead of just reading and leaving in silence. Or at the least, at least have the courtesy to rate the material.

Radrook Admin: Reporting physician malpractice might save someone else from getting murdered.

Radrook Admin: Funny how nobody believes you when you describe physician malpractice until it happens to them-isn't it.
