Do you tend to associate innocence with naivety and ignorance, or purity and goodness?

Sometimes it's good to have less experience in certain disciplines :)

You can be fully aware and informed, the opposite of naive and ignorant, and choose to retain your innocence, purity, and goodness. You'll probably intentionally let go of a good bit of that purity though, in the interest of balance and fun.

Naivety and ignorance make you an idiot, not innocent.
Purity and goodness don't necessarily make you innocent either, but it's certainly the better of the two options.

I chose the words nativity and ignorance because it makes me think of innocent children. They are "innocent" because they know no better.

Children are innocent because they have yet to learn otherwise. They are essentially incapable of being anything but innocent until they learn differently.

Basically, do you find it to be proof of inexperience? Or do you see it more as a strength?

I guess people could say I'm "innocent," but it's certainly not a hindrance as to who I am, what I am capable of or what I know.

Same with me. But people make me feel as it it is some kind of flaw.

Nope. ❤
No flaws in that! Being innocent or not doesn't really reflect upon the individual or many them any better than anyone else. The only time where true innocence matters is in legal matters, really.
