All the different words for important

I’ve seen a lot of words that mean “important / essential / vital” etc… I know in english, all these different words for important, have slightly different semantics and connotations. Is there any more meaning that can be added to these japanese words for important, to help differentiate them?

To deal with synonyms, especially since I use KaniWani as well, I made a tool where I could first find the synonyms and see their meaning and part of speech to help me differentiate them. Just up to levels 1-10, but I’m working on more.

Just add “important” in the search field to find them all. I also do a web search and people have talked about very similar words and explain the differences.

I think others might have spreadsheets to help as well.
