I believe it is a form of intelligence, so I agree. I think you are born with it.

I believe you have to be young and stupid before you can be old and wise.

Hows that for common sense?

therefore i do beleive what may be common sense for one person is not for another.

I think you are born with it. As I have 3 study models in my home and 2 have it and one doesn't. Nature or Nurture? Born with it or Acquired? Hopefully, you can still acquire it after being young and stupid or Mr. T. will have a long hard life.

I also believe you can be smart and dumb at the same time. My saying "Book smart / life stupid" I think you can acquire smarts, but practicality is another thing.

Thanks so much for putting me in such deep thought and retrospective so early in the morning.

Another question: If there is no such thing as reincarnation, how can some babies be born old and wise already?

I think this kind of talk requires a few bottles of wine.

Funny, but I know a lot of smart (super brainy) people who don't have any common sense.
So maybe it's what you define as common sense. Do you mean between men and women, husband and wife, etc?

How common is common sense? Sometimes, not very.

One MIGHT be born with it, but I believe you have to make a lot of trial and error before it comes easily.

I work with children and its definitely not well developed at age five. :)
