☆  perceptive  敏感な


When I was writing this email this morning, I wrote the English word as “perspective” and then when I looked at the Japanese translation, I thought something seemed wrong. And that made me re-check my copy of the Eigo Techo, and that was when I realized that I had written the wrong English word. That was very perceptive of me, don’t you think?! 🙂

Someone who is perceptive is good at noticing or realizing things. Of course, we usually say someone is perceptive when they notice things that are not so obvious, so perhaps me realizing that I had written the wrong English word wasn’t all that perceptive. Maybe it was just an obvious mistake… I’m not sure. What do you think?
