          Many adjectives that describe feelings end in ~ed or ~ing. These adjectives come from verbs. They are called participial adjectives

Interesting (adjective) = not boring; nice.
Eg: His presentation was very interesting. Nem deu pra piscar os eyes!

CONFUSED X CONFUSING:

Confused (adjective) = in doubt.
