Although Deadpool makes a good case for 'Common Sense' (as opposed to Spider-Sense), I think I'll go with Empathy, as in the Star Trek: TOS series 'The Empath'. Using it to help people. Of course, for decades now, I've told people that my dream job is Santa Claus. I wish I had infinite resources to do good things for people. (Twilight Zone's 'Night of the Meek' is one of my all-time favorite episodes.)

for those who don't know, the episode features an alien woman, Gem, who has the power to heal wounds and injuries in others by absorbing them into herself. She then heals at an accelerated rate.................................... Side effect - You can absorb the wounds and injuries of others and they heal instantaneously, but not you. You heal at the normal human rate.

But you can't be nice, whenever your friend/family/partner is in pain, you can only respond with, "wow. I feel your pain sooooo much," and it ends up destroying all the relationships you worked so hard to secure, and every single witty reply scrapes the emotionless black void you fought so hard to avoid all those years in therapy. But then again, you get a lot of upvotes (this isn't hating on Nathaniel btw, I'm trying to be funny)
