Definition: 1. having little or no interest; 2. neither good nor bad; 3. not mattering one way or another; 3. showing little care or concern

Synonyms: disinterested, detached, aloof, apathetic, unconcerned, unmoved, uninvolved, unremarkable, ordinary, undistinguished

Antonyms: interested, attached, concerned, involved, outstanding

Tips: The related noun difference means "a change which has an effect." Something indifferent makes no difference either way. Indifferent can also be used to describe something that is fair or average, but not great. Indifferent is synonymous with apathetic. Apathetic describes being indifferent and unenergetic about a decision, while indifferent is simply not caring about the outcome: "I'm indifferent--it doesn't make a difference to me."
