Where does your Wisdom comes from ?

Wisdom is a result of a never-ending process that requires the ability to think, judge and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense and insight.

It is a virtue allowing an individual to act with high authority, responsibility and accountability under any given circumstance with the goal to limit error or doing wrong in any given action with displeasure. 

In contrast, rational wisdom emerges from much deeper thoughts. Emotions should take a strongly subordinate position in discussions of wisdom and in its social relevance.

Nicholas Maxwell, a contemporary philosopher in the United Kingdom, advocates that academia ought to alter its focus from the acquisition of knowledge to seeking and promoting wisdom. This he defines as the capacity to realise what is of value in life, for oneself and others. He teaches that new knowledge and technological know-how increase our power to act. Without wisdom though, Maxwell claims this new knowledge may cause human harm as well as human good. 

Wisdom is the application of knowledge to attain a positive goal by receiving instruction in governing oneself.

The word wisdom is mentioned 222 times in the Hebrew Bible. It was regarded as one of the highest virtues among the Israelites along with kindness and justice. Both the books of Proverbs and Psalms urge readers to obtain and increase their wisdom.
