Common sense is genius dressed in its working clothes

MBA aspirants may be asked to write essay before GD & PI. Today, you will read Essay on: 
"Common sense is genius dressed in its working clothes"
 
Ralph Waldo Emerson, an American essayist and poet, once said, “Common sense is genius dressed in its working clothes”. There are many people in the world who are smart and intelligent. However, not all have common sense.
 
In fact, ordinary people and those with an average Intelligence Quotient (IQ) may have more sense of the ‘real world’ than someone with a degree or a PhD. Those who are well-educated are bookish may not necessarily be street smart.
 
For example, it is common sense that drunk driving is dangerous and that one should never engage in such an activity. But why is it that majority of the people caught for drunk driving are those who are educated? It is because there is no correlation between the level of education and common sense. Just because one is educated does not mean that he has common sense.
 
And on the other hand, just because one is not educated does not mean that he lacks common sense. To survive in the world, we need people skills and we should be street smart. Knowledge that is vested in books may come in handy at the workplace or at schools, but to be a genius in the real-world setting, common sense is essential. 
 
The definition of ‘common sense’ is simple – sound judgment based on the observation and perception of surroundings and facts. Only those who keep their eyes and ears open during their daily interactions have the ability to make sound judgments.
 
So, it is true that ‘common sense is after all, not so common’. Many people, especially those who are educated, take common sense for granted as they believe that the world runs based on the concepts found in their encyclopedias and books. Sadly, this is not the way of life.
