One of the three liberal arts forming the trivium. [Obs.]Skelton. Wood.
There are at least two usages of trivial. One is to describe answers, and the other is to describe questions/tasks.
Answers: A trivial answer is something which is either immediately self-evident or which conveys no information.
Questions/Tasks: A trivial question can perhaps be defined as something for which either the answer or the method of finding the answer is known by the person asked the question.
A term misused by neckbeard IT people as a synonym for 'simple'.
Someone who acts irresponsibly or with stupidity.
