Usability is more than common sense

\"There is a common misconception that usability equals common sense, but actually usability is more than common sense.  Although the definition of usability is closely related to logical relevance and common sense, it is very unwise just to rely on common sense in ensuring the usability of a product.  Using common sense is not only unwise but sometimes also dangerously misleading.\" - Adi B. Tedjasaputra
