Adjectives compartmentalize and adjectives are judgemental. My grammar textbook defines an adjective as a word that describes a noun. And there are some adjectives which get connected to some nouns like never before. We have all heard of the cunning fox, the timid hare and the mighty lion.
The most common adjectives in the world are 'good' and 'bad' - we easily and often unwittingly, classify people as good or bad.

And more adjectives keep coming. "He is very selfish", I say and get done with it. Do adjectives like these do any good?

Will anyone in this world ever be described by a single world? Will anyone in the world be only selfish? or only kind? Or only intelligent?

We all are not made in a single dimensions, there are so many aspects of a human's personality. We all are - multifaceted.

And that is an adjective too.
