These positive and negative adjectives include both common and academic words. Matching the opposites is good vocabulary practice (as discussed in Advanced Adjective Opposites Vocabulary Games.)
This game is a part of that group, on a separate page to enable the interactive script to work.
The non-interactive games below are also matching games: more opposites (antonyms) and then synonym matching.
They offer practice with words describing personality traits or attitudes (in addition to 'competent' and 'dependable' in the interactive matching game.)
Instructions: Match the negative words in the drop-down menu on the right with their opposites on the left, then check your answers.

Positive traits (generally):
Match the (usually negative) traits below with their opposite ones above:

K. bold, L. bored, M. careful, N. flexible, O. hardworking, P. kind, Q. optimistic, R. persistent, S. uncertain
