A sincere person = someone without pretense or hypocrisy, who is genuine and authentic,
and who lives by the simple and pure truth they believe in.
An insincere person = someone who is a hypocrite, inauthentic, pretentious, and who does not
live their life in a way that agrees with what they say they believe.
