With 昧 you can describe wording or stances as vague and can call people stupid and ignorant. But the real fun comes in with a term that people use to discuss immersions, as in, “I’m spending my life indulging in fantasies, writing, and naps” or “He spent his days just reading books.” This term can also pull you over to the dark side: “He lived a short life as a result of the evil acts he committed.”
