Playing dumb and acting innocent

Playing dumb or acting innocent refers to deliberately pretending to be unaware or ignorant of something, often for personal gain or to avoid responsibility. It can be a strategy used in various situations, such as when someone wants to avoid blame or consequences for their actions, when they want to manipulate others, or when they want to gather information without arousing suspicion.

However, it’s important to note that consistently playing dumb or acting innocent may have negative consequences. People may perceive it as dishonesty or manipulation, which can damage trust and relationships. It’s generally considered more honest and respectful to address situations directly and take responsibility for one’s actions.
