    frightened man

    John's a frightened man.

    Does the sentence mean that John is easily scared?

    Thank you. Have a nice day.

    No. He has been scared, and still is.

    Thank you, fivejedjon.

    Sorry I wrote the question wrongly. It should be:
    Does the sentence mean that John scares easily?

    "John scares easily" and "John is easily scared" mean the same.
