To what extent is common sense innate versus influenced by interactions with others? If someone has grown up with minimal interaction with other people, would their common sense be different?

This entire question is based on the assumption that "common sense" has a specific definition. I do not think this question is answerable in its current form, because the concept of common sense itself is vaguely defined. –  AsheeshR Jan 4 at 14:39
