☆ insight 洞察力
There are two ways to use the word, “insight.” The first way is to talk about someone who has insight, and in that case you mean that they are able to understand complex situations. For example: Bill has a strong personality, with considerable insight and social skills. (This means that Bill has a good understanding of social situations.)
The second one is when you talk about gaining insight or having insight into a situation. When you gain this insight, you gain a deep understanding of the situation. For example, “I hope my explanation has given you some insight into the sort of work that we do here.”
In the first situation, “insight” is a part of a person’s character. In the second situation, “insight” is understanding that anyone can gain regarding a certain situation.
