Shrewdness: n. smart and astute

A shrewd human or businesshuman is not only smart or good at solving problems but is astute and able to assess humans and circumstances and use this knowledge for one’s personal gain or benefit.


The only problem with shrewdness is that deception may be used in the process and this is really not advisable if the human wants to maintain a good reputation in the long duration which should be without the use of deceptive practices.


Shrewdness without the deception is the preferred business practice or the preferred practice when dealing with humans.


There are many shrewd advertisements filled with deception and I am not an advocate of them.
