A ‘genial’ person is pleasant and outgoing, with an ability to be jovial and at ease in most social situations. Naturally, such people tend to be well-liked and able to turn interactions with others to their own advantage. This word can also be used to describe an affectionate and warm action, such as a smile, and weather which is conducive to happiness, particularly sunshine.
