We can hardly close our book on the words suggested by ingenuous without looking at the other side of the coin. If ingenuous means frank, open, then disingenuous should mean not frank or open. But disingenuous people are far more than simply not ingenuous. They are crafty, cunning, dishonest, artful, insineere, untrustworthy – and they are all of these while making a pretence of being simple, frank, and aboveboard. You are thinking of a wolf in sheep’s clothing? It’s a good analogy.
Similarly, a remark may be disingenuous, as may also a statement, an attitude, a confession etc.
