To develop common sense the following qualifications are indispensable:
- Ability to grasp situation
- Ability to concentrate the mind.
- Keenness in perception
- Exercising of the reasoning power.
- Power of approximation
- Self control.
Developing these qualities will make a person see things as they are and do things as they should be done. In a layman’s language ‘common sense’ is all about “keeping the eyes and ears open.”
Many people gifted with common sense, but deprived of ordinary intelligence, have amassed a fortune. A person, however intelligent he/she may be – if he/she is not at all pragmatic and does not exercise common sense in day to day life, will not be successful. Even in things, which concern health, family, career, religion and in everyday life, it is common sense which has the upper hand over intelligence. Common sense is rightly called as the intelligence of the instinct.
