Synonyms of "Consistent" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between consistent and constant ?
A: Those are good questions! They are very similar words, and some people do use them to mean the same thing. In your example with the library, they are almost the same.

But now that I think about it more deeply, "constantly" is only about the quantity of the action, while "consitently" shows quantity and quality.

To make another example, let's use exercise.
Someone who exercises constantly is doing exercise at all hours. They only stop to sleep.
Some who exercises consistently may exercise every day, but not all the time. They have more diligence and always achieve their goals.

If we go back to your example, the student who studies constantly only takes breaks to use the toilet and sleep. The quality may not always be good, but the studying is always happening. The student who studies consistently takes breaks to eat, sleep, and take walks. But when they study, it is always the quality they planned for.

Constant is good, but consistent is better.

Q: What is the difference between consistent and constant ?
A: If I play music every day at 5 PM, that is consistent (it occurs with regularity according to some pattern or schedule; the same thing occurs every time).

If I play music throughout the whole day, that is constant (it occurs or remains the same throughout the whole time period).
Q: What is the difference between consistent and constant and continuous ?
A: There is some overlap, but I would use them in different contexts.

Consistent means 'regular', 'with a pattern', so there can be a lot of time between events, as long as the time between is the same.

Example sentence: "He is very consistent in his political choices: economy good or bad, he always votes Labour!"

Constant normally means 'unchanging', but if a pattern is consistent, it is also unchanging, so there is some overlap. It can also mean 'steady' or 'firm', but that's a bit more rare.

Example sentence: "I can't take the constant pressure of these exams!"

Continuous means 'without a break', so it doesn't really overlap with consistent, but it does overlap a bit with constant.

Example sentence: "As soon as the doors opened, there was a continuous stream of people coming in".
