Guilelessness refers to the state of being sincere, innocent, and free from deceitful behavior. Its antonyms include cunning, deception, deceit, duplicity, guile, craftiness, and artfulness. These words imply a lack of honesty or sincerity and suggest that the person is trying to manipulate or deceive others for their own benefit. Someone who is not guileless may be dishonest, insincere, or scheming. These antonyms reflect the opposite of the qualities that guilelessness embodies; trustworthiness, transparency, and authenticity. Therefore, it's essential to choose words carefully to avoid conveying the wrong meaning when trying to describe someone's character.
