Pleasing applies generally to things not physical: as, a pleasant face; a pleasing aspect, variety. Pleasant suggests the effect produced, pleasing the power of producing it; hence we may say a pleasant or a pleasing variety. Pleasing must be objective, pleasant may be subjective : as, he was in a pleasant mood. Agreeable and congenial are used of social qualities and relations, but the latter goes deeper, expressing a natural suitableness, on the part of a person or thing, to the tastes, habits, temperament, or passing mood of the person concerned.n.
