- For Teachers
Does anyone know any idioms which relate to personality adjectives such as optimistic, pessomistic, fussy, nosy, inquisitive, aggressive, open, communicative etc. This is for my CELTA lesson.
Thanks a lot

"As mean as the devil" is to be a very bad person.
"To be a lazy dog" is to be very lazy.
"To be thick between the ears" to be slow to understand.
"To be slow off the mark" is to be slow to act or to react to an event or situation.
