There are three classical states of matter. Gas, Liquid & Solid. These are the three states which clasical science knew about and which tried to explain in various ways.
Since then it has been discovered that there are many more distinct states of matter and even some propsed states. These include Plasma, Liquid Crystal, Bose-Einstein condensates and Magnetically-ordered.
Its not really possible to say what is common in the three clasical states since they share a number of characteristics with each other and also with other discovers states of matter.
