素直すなお vs. 正直しょうじき: What is The Difference Between Them?

Is it still difficult for you to explain the difference between 素直すなお and 正直しょうじき? Although these words are one of the complicated words, they have clear differences. After figuring them out, why don’t you practice how to use them? Let me introduce what their differences are today!




素直すなお(sunao)

Obedient (Honest)

素直すなお(sunao)” means “Obedient” and which has been used as the meaning of “doing, or willing to do, what you have been told to do by someone in authority”. The basic way to use it is “___は素直すなおだ。(___ am/is/are obedient.)”, etc. For instance, “弟’おとうと’は素直すなおだ。(My younger brother is obedient.)”, etc. The tips for using it is that 素直’すなお’ has been used as the meaning of “UNDOUBTEDLY DO WAHT SOMEONE TELL”, unlike “正直しょうじき“. Everyone could use 素直’すなお’ as casual, polite and formal such as “おとうと素直すなおだよ。(My younger brother is obedient.)” as casual and “おとうと素直すなおです。(My younger brother is obedient.)” as polite and formal. Although some people use “素直すなお” is used as the same meaning of “正直しょうじき“, again basically “素直すなお” means “Obedient”.
