    2. It would be easy for me to just look at a dictionary and give you the definitions, but that would be boring, so I'll just give you my impression on what each of these words mean to me as a native speaker. Affable: I'd use this to describe someone who gets on well with almost anybody. An affable person would most likely be considered kind and generous by people around them. For me it also carries the nuance that this person may be outgoing and extroverted as opposed to reserved and introverted. Amiable: This word has a kind of flexible nature to it, like pliable or malleable. Maybe it's for this reason that I think of an amiable person as being someone who gets on well with others because they are able to look past their faults. There is a very slight nuance that an amiable person may be taken advantage of because they try their best to be amiable, as in they try to always be accommodating to others. An affable person would be more likely to speak their mind when they think something is off, whereas an amiable person might stay quiet and just go along with whatever it is. Inviting: An inviting person is someone who gives the impression that they are an open book, hold no secrets, and do their best to make others around them feel comfortable. They would be generous with their time and seem like someone you could count on in a time of need. Disclaimer: These are just my feelings on these words, and may not coincide perfectly with a dictionary or other native speakers.
