    VANCOUVER, BC, February 01, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- If something interests you then it is interesting or you have an interest in it - no problem here. However, if it doesn't interest you - how do you describe your state of mind?

The fact that there appear to be two antonyms for 'interested' - 'uninterested' and 'disinterested' - leads to confusion for many people and misuse of one or other of these words is common.

Actually, the antonym to interested is 'uninterested'.

I am very interested in golf but my husband is completely uninterested; he prefers to play tennis.

Disinterested is not the opposite of interested; if you are disinterested you are impartial. To get a fair ruling on something, assuming two parties disagree, you might want to bring in a third party who is 'disinterested' to decide the issue. A disinterested person has no interest - financial, emotional or other - in the issue or the outcome so their judgement is unbiased.

I trusted his recommendation; he wasn't trying to sell me anything, he's a disinterested party.

In this sentence the person referred to might - or might not - find the situation interesting; however, he has nothing to gain or lose so his advice is impartial and therefore trustworthy - he is 'disinterested'.
