● No one wants to be around someone who is aloof or disingenuous.

● Instead of being genial and mingling with her classmates at the zoo, Donna was aloof and standoffish.

● After getting to know Seth, I discovered that he wasn’t aloof, as many people claimed, instead, he suffered from a diagnosed personality disorder.

Tip: Use the word during a conversation today. The more you familiarize yourself with this word, by consistently incorporating it in your vocabulary and writing, the easier it will be to remember the word. Figuratively speaking, you’ll own the word.
