Research suggests wisdom is linked to happiness and mental health


Results showed that those with Schizophrenia had lower wisdom scores compared to those whop were control participants. Cognitive performance and multiple neurocognitive task performance among those with schizophrenia was higher when they had higher wisdom scores.


It’s interesting, but I doubt there is an across the board agreement on what ‘wisdom’ is.

There rarely is with any psychological concept, but I think wisdom is one of the harder ones to define. I read an attempted definition several years ago that felt incomplete.


It’s a fine line between being wise and just being plain boring.
