Wisdom is a complex and multidimensional construct that has been studied by psychologists from various perspectives. There is no consensus on a single definition of Wisdom, but some common themes include: the ability to integrate knowledge and experience across different domains; the capacity to balance Self-interest and social good; the Awareness of uncertainty and limitations of one’s own knowledge; the willingness to learn from others and seek feedback; and the application of ethical and moral principles to decision-making. Wisdom is often associated with positive outcomes such as well-being, happiness, resilience, and Prosocial behaviour.
