    Lightbulb Looking for a word to describe someone who's able to make good judgment by himself

    Hello,

    I'm looking for an proper adjective to describe someone's character of being able to make good judgment by himself, not depending on others. Judgmental came to my mind in the first place, but it's not what I'm looking for since it's kind of a disapproval word. Being a non-native speaker, I'm have no idea what word can fit my need here.

    Your quick response will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    "Sensible" sprang to mind. Look here: sensible - WordReference.com English Thesaurus for synonyms of it and make your pick.

    Of course, native speakers may have some more appropriate words for this context.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    "Decisive" can also work.

    How about self-assured?
