COMMON SENSE AND LOGICAL REASONING-NONCOMPLEMENTARY
Contrary to popular belief, COMMON SENSE and LOGIC are not complementary to each other. No. They aren’t…you read it right the first time. COMMON SENSE is an indispensible attribute that we’d like to believe that everyone was born with. In the medical/research community…we’d refer to COMMON SENSE as being “innate”. But ohhhhh, how my 32 years on this earth have enlightened me to just the contrary….I haven’t figured out yet if some of us are born with it, and others aren’t, OR, if it’s a learned “sense” that some people were just not fortunate enough to be taught/acquire…..in the medical community, we’d refer to the acquisition of COMMON SENSE as “adaptive”.
LOGIC….is defined as the study of VALID reasoning. Many people say and do things that just sound/are plain old STUPID…ya know…YEAH….but they will defend it to the very end. Every individual is not able generate VALID reasoning because they lack COMMON SENSE. You see..if individuals lack COMMON SENSE in their adult life, then it’s “game over”, go ahead and pull the curtains, because there’s not a snowball’s chance in hell that any decision/position on an issue/debate/argument will ever be LOGICAL……I’ve seen it many times before…just as recently as….well, nevermind…lol
On the flipside, if individuals are lucky enough to possess COMMON SENSE, then there is a definite chance of LOGICAL reasoning…..and the chance they will not make themselves look/sound like a complete idiot. This blog may appear as just a very nondescript piece, but I promise if you comb though it carefully, and read between the lines, you’ll find someone you know….maybe even yourself! We are all adults, and should represent ourselves accordingly!
Before anyone takes offense, it is important to point out that this is not an attack on any particular person/situation…if you’re offended…….acquire some COMMON SENSE, and then you can generate VALID reasoning as to why this may apply to you! #ijs :)
