Group B has three people, one is in good health, has average intelligence and good common sense, psychical fit, they are just like everyone in Group A. The second one, is in good health, has average intelligence,psychical fit, but lacks some in the common sense department , always doing some thing stupid even if they know better. the thrid has a very high level of intelligence, good health, not very psychical fit ie, couldn't fight his way out of a wet paper bag, has no common sense, think Sheldon Cooper type, can think out of the box, very awkward in both social settings and psychical capabilities , but not arrogant.

but if you don't have common sense, self control has little to do with it.
say that common sense tell you not to go there, you have none, so you not knowing any better you go there.
if you are the thrid, although your level of intellect might let you figure a way out, lacking in the others hinders you.
where as if the second, even though you knew better. you stand a better chance of psychically and mentally getting yourself out without someones help.
Your common sense is learned and is relative to the pre SHTF world, not the new one, so it may not be the advantage you think. For example, in this world, it may be common sense to try and talk your way out of or run away from dangerous situations-but post SHTF zombies wont listen and will follow no matter how far you run, so your learned common sense will get you killed. Take the super-intelligent guy-he may be more adaptable and more valuable in the new world than you think.
