Definition of: candid

(kandid) adjective
1. Sincere; ingenuous; frank.
2. Impartial; fair.
3. Obs. White; also, pure. [<MF candide pure, honest <L candidus <candere gleam, shine]
Synonyms: aboveboard, artless, fair, frank, guileless, honest, impartial, ingenuous, innocent, naive, open, simple, sincere, straightforward, transparent, truthful, unbiased, unprejudiced, unreserved, unsophisticated. A candid statement is meant to be true to the real facts and just to all parties; a fair statement is really so. Fair is applied to the conduct but candid is not; as, fair treatment, a fair field and no favor. One who is frank has a fearless and unconstrained truthfulness. Honest and ingenuous unite in expressing total lack of deceit. On the other hand, artless, guileless, naive, simple, and unsophisticated express the goodness which comes from want of the knowledge or thought of evil. Sincere applies to the feelings as being all that one's words would imply. See HONEST. Antonyms: adroit, artful, crafty, cunning, deceitful, designing, diplomatic, foxy, insincere, intriguing, knowing, maneuvering, sharp, shrewd, sly, subtle, tricky, wily.
