    Re: ask for adj. to describe person

    It depends upon the person's personality.

    Does he/she always seem to be happy and smiling and not easily upset?
    You could describe him/her as cheerful, optimistic, enthusiastic, carefree.

    If they are particularly sympathetic to the problems of their friends, you could say they are caring, nurturing, empathetic, or always willing to lend a hand.

    If they seem to be very serious, you'd describe them as insightful, intellectual, ponderous, or thoughtful.

    Er, well, looks like I plainly goofed it.
    Cult is one of those words which are too similar to another in Spanish ("Culto", in Spanish "knowledgeable"). So my mind played a trick on me.

    I stand corrected, thanks pal.
