O.K. people,

Weve had our views, let's take a vote and I will vote first. If there are any other choices deemed applicable please respond and I will make the needed adjustments.

Al,

Isn't the first (common sense is learned) and last (common sense is an outcome of life's experience) pretty much the same....I guess as a graduate from the School of Hard Knocks, I found it hard to decide which to vote for. But, I know one thing, very few, if any of us are born with it. Some of us just catch on quicker.

Steel, I agree very few of us are born with it, worse yet is very few learn it through life experiences. Maybe it is where I live, but very few people in this area have enough sense to come in out of the rain. Maybe it is the cold weather we have freezing their brains, I don't know but to be honest it scares me!

Cmon ISO Guy - if we came out of the rain, we'd be inside most of the time!

Its possible the folks with common sense have gotten the H out!

Altho I try and hang with people with common sense, so I can't agree, necessarily. I don't dwell on those types - because I'd probably get frustrated like you. Ignore them, they'll go away.

This is a tough one.

If it's learned, more people need to buy the book...

If it's taught, who's the teacher...

If it's inherent, we'd all probably have the same mother and father...

If it's the outcome of a life experience, we'd all be too old to know if we have it...

I think it's a gift...much like a sixth sense.

I agree with ol' Sam C.

I could have sworn that Mark Twain once said that "the problem with common sense is that it isn't" (common, that is) but a search through on-line quotation sites turns up empty (even the Mark Twain site).

Ken,

I think I must agree.....it is a gift.

James,

That site is one of the best on the net. I first saw it a few years ago, though I haven't looked at it lately...it is classic!
