Common sense
Common sense
Relies on intuition

Relies on peers rather than experts

Seeks consistency

Prefers stories, anecdotal evidence

Accepts supernatural explanations

Doesn't recognize effect of culture on perception

Unfamiliar with basic principles of science

Doesn't easily recognize the implausible

Confuses correlation with cause-effect

Doesn't deal with probability

Doesn't recognize the ambiguity of language

Makes quick decisions

Prefers rationalizing to analysis

Resists new evidence

The paradox of common sense
