What is wisdom? Easier to be wise re lives of others and not your own life.

Just read Staudinger and Glück's ARP article on the psychology of wisdom. Hard field to define, but a good overview article. I have made comments and annotations in a copy of the article as per IQs Reading feature.

A couple of interesting tidbits:

-It is easier to be wise regarding matters of others but not as easy regarding your own life.
-Personal versus external wisdom -2 types.
-older does not necessary make you wiser, and aging can decrease wisdom in some.
-wisdom not reserved for the aged. Think of young people with old souls
-wisdom is interaction of cognitive (Gf, Gc), conative, personality and life experiences.
