I think that generally we define "common sense" something that actually is just the way used by the mass to react to situations. Following this principle, "common" doesn't mean "good". Good sense is a different thing yet.

hmmm. now I think I already got it by reading frengo's explanation.

for example, most people think that Titanic is a great and popular movie...that is a common sense, however, I don't think so, in the other words, I don't have such a common sense! I think Titanic sucks! by contrast, I prefer porn to Titanic.

that is a great example for the thesis of the thread?

Red Rose you dont understand the common sense.

common sense is just like you think. thats belong to your personality,

for example. you told us that you took a shover without a curtain covering the window. and you thought that no one see you. that is your common sense. thats wrong at that time because a boy next to your appartment see you naked.

i think you be understand about common sense.

I like that phrase: Common sense is a sense that is not common. I think it's so true!
