Synonyms of "Tacky" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between tacky and cringy and embarrassing ?
A: Tacky is usually used for objects, not behavior. So an ugly or unfashionable shirt would be tacky, for example.

Cringy and embarrassing are very similar. However, cringy often means that it is another person judging you, while embarrassing is often you judging yourself.

Examples:
If you see a grown up who still plays with dolls, someone might call that “cringy.” The adult would not feel ashamed of that themself, but another person would find it weird, so it is cringy.

If you forget someone’s name, you might be embarrassed. This is common and happens to everyone, so the other person would probably not mind and they would not judge you. But you would feel bad and judge yourself, so you are embarrassed.
