The novel revolves around two types of people, those with sense, and those with sensibility. Those with "sense" display character traits like responsibility, restraint, and a clear sense of reality. Those categorized as exhibiting "sensibility" are emotional, impulsive, obsessive.... they live in the moment. Of the two main characters, Elinor displays sense, and her sister, Marianne, displays sensibility.
