Literally: short – consider – light – proportion
Alternately: Deciding things without considering the consequences or results. Impulsive; unthinking. Rash.
Notes: This four-character compound comprises compound adjectival nouns 短慮, “imprudence,” “quick temper,” and 軽率, “hasty,” “rash.” The order of these elements may be reversed at times.
I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
