comment What is the psychological cause and meaning of “common sense”?
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.

comment Why do people blame others rather than take responsibility?
@caseyr547 Its funny you should ask. I was reminded of this paradox after I read your question. However, after giving it some thought I am not entirely certain it applies in the specific context you were asking about. The scapegoat is usually an underling in the team, while the person whose decision everybody follows/respects in the case of the Abilene paradox is usually one of the senior members or bosses or respected members. From my limited knowledge and reading of sociology texts, I cannot be certain whether the paradox applies in the case of "scapegoats".
