Which is correct? Is it “confused with” or “confused about”?
Answer: Both are grammatically correct but they don’t mean the same.
According to dictionary.com, confused about (like to confuse someone about something) means “to cause someone to be puzzled or bewildered about something“. On the other hand, confused with (like to confuse someone with someone else) means “to mix someone up with someone else; to mistake someone or something with something else.”
