Synonyms Pleasant, Pleasing, Agreeable, Congenial, gratifying, acceptable, welcome. Pleasing is the strongest, and agreeable the weakest of the first four words. Pleasant may be, and generally is, applied to things in the concrete: as, pleasant weather. Pleasing applies generally to things not physical: as, a pleasant face; a pleasing aspect, variety. Pleasant suggests the effect produced, pleasing the power of producing it; hence we may say a pleasant or a pleasing variety. Pleasing must be objective, pleasant may be subjective : as, he was in a pleasant mood. Agreeable and congenial are used of social qualities and relations, but the latter goes deeper, expressing a natural suitableness, on the part of a person or thing, to the tastes, habits, temperament, or passing mood of the person concerned.
