    Have you tried a thesaurus? – Matt E. Эллен Dec 9 '15 at 10:32
  • EL&U doesn't accept single-word-requests that simply ask for a word without any context for how it will be used. If all you want is a substitute word, then please use a thesaurus (e.g. Thesaurus.com), as that is what they are designed for. The question could be reopened if you edit it to include information about how you will use the word, e.g. an example sentence or situation. – Matt E. Эллен Dec 9 '15 at 10:41

Try reasonable:

(of a person) having sound judgment; fair and sensible

(Oxford Dictionary)

Also, rational might fit, depending on the context:

Able to think sensibly or logically

(Oxford Dictionary)
