Origin of incongruentClassical Latin incongruens
When you take one position on something and then a second later you take a contrary position, this is an example of a situation where your statements would be described as incongruent.
- Not congruent.
(comparative more incongruent, superlative most incongruent)
- Telling a lie is usually incongruent to a person's cognitive pattern, and for this reason it is not surprising that a physical response - no matter how subtle - is usually present.
- One's business or garden, the theatre, &c., which promptly inhibit the isolated presentation if incongruent, and unite it to themselves if not.
