Common Sense and related Ethics provides for logical prediction of the Future, actually with mutual support, to create the desired Future.
Emotional Intelligence allows a person to interpret a great many Social variables and assign relative values in the Present.
People ethically working together that have developed skills of Self-Respect, convey through body language and voice inflections their confidence in what is being expressed. Body Language and Voice Inflection can simultaneously convey logic, social, and emotional relationships expressed through writing, voice, art, or even physical touch; each with different confidence in the related expression.
To attempt to logically break Emotional Intelligence into tools to act on separately, requires significant study, practice, and evaluation.
However, we can through general practice learn generalized expression of these skills through the method of Learning to Teach Common Sense.
The process of expressing skills in Critical Thinking and Critical Reasoning, provokes body language and voice inflections of team members. Because of the focused effort, mis-interpretations of body language and voice inflections can be adjusted towards more accurate interpretations.

Though the design of this tool mentions artifacts of discrimination, the intent is to mutually communicate the actual differences to get on common ground. To put up a wall and say “I won’t see” ensures social disparity and discriminatory treatment. The 3-person method of teaching common sense, does just that, it teaches how different people have different life experiences, and different life skills, express themselves related to engaging common social practices. By “recognizing” these differences and comparing them to our own expressions; we find common ground.
The rich environment of learned expressions based on cultural, gender, subculture diversity, age, race, color, religion, sex, and national origin, enrich our understanding of our own expressions. Diversity gives us a larger emotional vocabulary to express greater details in managing risks. Accurately managing risks allows a team to create a combined intellect, to fill gaps for each other, and to accurately identify when there is a need for additional expertise (research or experts) to fill reasoning gaps.
Expertise, may come from research on the internet (always the first place to start), other members of the team not present, and other people who do not threaten the security of the team.
