Positive Psychology

Examples of the difference between intelligence and wisdom are generally easy to find in the
news. Find an example of an intelligent person who acted unwisely and had to pay the
consequences such as fines or jail time. You can choose a business person, celebrity,
government official, or anyone who has acted unwisely and otherwise seems intelligent.

  2. To me personally,knowledge is the accumulation of information, intelligence is the ability to use that information, and wisdom is knowing when where and how to use the information.

    I searched Google under the key words "intelligence wisdom" to get these possible sources:

    http://www.paulgraham.com/wisdom.html
    http://www.xenodochy.org/ex/misc/wisdom.html
    http://www.gamegrene.com/node/385
    http://diary.carolyn.org/wisdom.html
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wisdom

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
