Adjective[edit]

impressible

  1. Capable of being impressed; susceptible of receiving impression.
    • 1863, Sheridan Le Fanu, The House by the Churchyard
      Like other men who have little religion, Mr. Paul Dangerfield had a sort of vague superstition. He was impressible by omens, though he scorned his own weakness, and sneered at, and quizzed it sometimes in the monologues of his ugly solitude.
  2. Capable of creating an impression. (Can we add an example for this sense?)
