    It's a mix! Gotta have both to be a well-rounded individual . . . and I'm not talking about Governor Christie either.

    Self Education, nothing better. A combination of Common Sense and Book Smart.

    I lean on my common sense for most issues. It has never let me down.
    I generally make the right decisions and I'm on the right track most of the time.

    It's good to be book smart, but it means nothing if you have no common sense! A combination of both would be ideal (:

    You need some of the book smarts, but a lot of the common sense.

    The book is theory, the car stopped on the railroad track with a train barreling down on you is reality, which will help you more immediately? The owners manual or the door handle?

    When I was in the Navy my first ship had 31 of 33 officers were prior enlisted, and the ship ran like clockwork, because they all understood reality did not match the official Naval milpers manual, my second ship, 28 of 29 were all straight out of officers school, - and almost half were Academy graduates, the could barely get us out of the harbor, and heaven forbid something major happened that was not in a manual, because they could not figure out what to do, and of course, none of the enlisted that had been around for 10-15-20 years were not qualified to be asked how to tie a shoe

    Books are a stepping stone, but common sense is valuable. With it, brings experience. And through experience, we learn wisdom.

    Common sense or street smarts trumps books any day. Book smarts will get you only so far, but experience is very important.

    I don't believe the two are mutually exclusive, in fact, most of the time they go together.
