Someone basic, attached to day by day issues, ruled by the common sense. Not a dreamer or idealistic, not into the creative field or the Arts. Usually connoted with one either without studies or a especial knowledge or intellectual skill. In some context you may use it to express ones singular act, but not the person them self.

Used by today's kids as a compliment. The definition of the word should therefore be changed to something along the lines of, 'The yearn to have everything your spoiled ass has ever wanted, but to simultaneously be seen as someone who's genuinely compassionate' in short, pseudo-compassionship.

An grossly overused, idiotic phrase which technically means "one who has no imagination." The funny thing is, the type of people who generally assign this quality to themselves are the artsy-creative type. To many drugs will do that too you.

The quality users are trying to express is: genuine, real.
That guy is really "down to Earth..." oh he is huh? well thank god he is not "up on Mars."
