SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

inscrutable (adj) not easily understood.

If a person or their expression is inscrutable, it is impossible for others to know their thoughts or feelings. Inscrutable people put on expressionless faces so that we cannot understand what is going on in their mind. 'Inscrutable are the ways of destiny.' This means none can understand the ways of fate.

  • John's smile was inscrutable when he was told of his overseas posting. It was difficult, in fact, even impossible, to know whether he was happy about it or not.
  • She remained inscrutable for a long moment when he proposed to her. He was unable to bear the suspense as her face indicated neither willingness nor rejection. He heaved a sigh of relief when he smiled and said, 'yes.'
