Every man should have common sense. Common sense is not technical skill, it is interpersonal skill of a man. But there are many situation man lost her common sense. :shock: Education means not only books knowledge but also extra knowledge which is gained from her arround environment.

common sense is about using reason, thinking critically, and not falling for BS... the sad truth is most people that say they have it generally do so to support their spreading of BS...

If "sense" were "common" we wouldn't need traffic laws, people would just do what made sense. I never use the term "common sense" because it's not common at all. I use "good sense".

You find "good" sense more common?
