Let me ask you a question:

Is intelligence or wisdom more useful?

  1. I would say wisdom is more useful because you can really learn from your experiences, knowledge and so on. Intelligence can also sometimes be a curse. I don’t know if this is such a theory or it is just my theory. But I think some people can be too intelligent where it leads to so many problems. Another favorite quote of mine when it comes to intelligence is “I have never met an intelligent person who was happy” So in this regard, I would say it is more useful in life to have wisdom.

  2. You need both. Both complement each other. Both are interrelated. Both are useful.
    You show wisdom with the knowledge/intelligence you know. Wisdom is useless when ignorance exists.
    Intelligence/knowledge sharpens and enhances your wisdom. The more you know the better experienced and wise you get.
    We can only know and evaluate your intelligence or ignorance to an extent based on how wise or ignorant you act.
    Both are useful. Without wisdom, we won’t know how to ACT properly because wisdom is an action word in a sense.
    Without intelligence, how would we know what’s right and what’s not? We would be ignorant men parading our wisdom without the proof of it.
    🌺The proof of the intelligence in us is the wisdom through which we use it and show it🌺

  3. That’s a tough one, but I’d say wisdom. In most cases, common sense and being wise to the ways of the world and people is much more beneficial than plain book smarts. It doesn’t always have to be one or the other though.
