    Best answer: They are different branches of the idea of in-borne or from birth, which is why they have a similar root. Genuine and ingenuous have the idea of real, or truth. Genius has the idea of from or to do with the mind. Both refer to the nature of a person (from birth) but with different emphasis. Dis- means not, or far from.

    So, while they are very similar ideas, they are applied in different ways, to different aspects of the human condition.

    Over time, of course, words do migrate in specific meaning, so now disingenuous is not an open declaration of liar, it is more a declaration of purposely avoiding candor, avoiding being truthful rather than openly being false. They are not the same things, after all.
