Academically intelligent but no common sense?Watch
I get reasonable good grades at college (mostly Bs and a few Cs) which is good coming from my family lol. No-one has ever been to university from my family or speaks any other languages so to say I've learnt to speak Spanish semi-fluently and will be learning another at uni suggests that I must have some academic intelligence.
The problem is, I have absolutely no common sense - I'm clumsy, I forget dates, times, chores etc... I'm quiet and I think it's true for others, or so I've heard, that people who are academically clever can have no common sense. Is anyone else like this?
I've been called intelligent but not clever.
However, she couldn't organise a pissup in a brewery Her organisational skills are really really poor and while she's not totally lacking in common sense there is something to be desired there as well
When it comes to jobs and stuff, I forgot those as well. And I'm always late because I forget times.
So you're not alone!
And yes im very clumsy too!!! This really annoys my bf who says 'for a clever girl, you can be really THICK at times' LOL..
Common sense is what tell us that the earth is flat and the sun orbits it
common sense doesnt exist
Although I'm sure you're not that bad. He's the most extreme case of it I've come across!
Someone with common sense, would know common sense does exist,
But then he revealed to us that he can't actually remember his own telephone number.
We thought he was joking but it's actually true!
