Naifs, a term which describes a person who is innocent, naive, or inexperienced, has some antonyms that are diametrically opposed to this word. One antonym is astute, which refers to a person who is shrewd, keen-witted and able to make wise decisions. Another antonym is worldly, which describes a person who is well-informed, sophisticated and experienced in the ways of the world. Cynical is another antonym which describes a person who is distrustful of human nature and suspicious of people's motives. Jaded also describes a person who is weary, bored and unenthusiastic as a result of having experienced too much of something. These words are in direct contrast to naifs, and help to paint a broader picture of character traits.
