What is Wisdom? Part One.Quotes are taken from the book 1001 Ways to Wisdom
Wisdom is more than Knowledge.
Knowledge which is divided into three domains, Personal, Propositional, and Procedural.
Personal Knowledge is based on the first-hand experience,
Procedural relies on the first-hand truth about the world as we see it
and Propositional is based on things we learn, like how to do something like baking a cake, riding a bike.
Wisdom, is the ability to think using knowledge, personal experience, understanding, Judgement, Intelligence, Insight and Common sense.
How do we gain Wisdom; why do we need it; and when do we use it?It is not knowledge that makes us wise, it is knowing how to use that knowledge.
Knowledge can exist without Wisdom, but not the other way around. One can be knowledgeable without having wisdom. Wisdom is the appropriate application of knowledge. For example, Knowledge is learning the ten commandments. Wisdom is following them.
It is better to know yourself than those that speak of you.
