☆  skeptical  疑い深い


If you are skeptical about something, you have doubts about it. Other adjectives that have similar meanings are: doubtful, cynical, dubious, incredulous, unconvinced, and disbelieving.

What kinds of things do you feel skeptical about? For me, it is the obvious things like advertisements that say you can “get rich quick” or “lose weight fast.” But, to be honest, I’m also skeptical when my kids tell me that they are going to clean their rooms! Lol.

By the way, skeptical is the American spelling. In Australia and the UK, we spell it with a c not a k, as in sceptical. If you are skeptical about this, you can check on Google. Ha ha 😉
