Knowledge vs Wisdom

The Time Factor

More time means that a person can attain more knowledge, but as knowledge is a passive acquisition of facts and data, having more knowledge does not mean having wisdom.

Wisdom tends to be less affected by time, as it requires additional steps of applying judgement, drawing conclusions and adapting one’s behaviour accordingly.

Key Ideas

Knowledge And Wisdom

  • Knowledge is the factual information, the awareness, and understanding of a subject. It is basically information about something that comes from learning facts.
  • Wisdom is the ability to use knowledge and expertise to make sound judgement and decisions. It is an intangible quality that comes from experience and observation.

Application of Knowledge and Wisdom

  • Wisdom is related to knowledge, just as practice is related to theory. Wisdom is intrinsic whereas knowledge comes from external sources.
  • Application of wisdom requires more than facts and data, like speculations, feelings, moral and ethical values. Applying knowledge is a much simpler and more linear process.

Example: Development of nuclear weapons requires knowledge, but during wartime, using nuclear weapons on a country requires wisdom.

Attentional Capital (AC)

AC=a measurement used to calculate how we arrive at a place of knowledge.
  • A high AC: you have obtained your information through focused and objective research and would be open to changing your position if presented with sufficient evidence.
  • A low AC: you reactively believe whatever comes across your news feed and hold onto your beliefs in a dogmatic and tribal manner.

Third-Person Thinking

Third-person thinking, or talking to yourself about the problem as an outsider, or as a witness, can temporarily improve decision making, according to numerous studies.

New-Found Wisdom

Talking to yourself in the third person brings clarity, insight and greater emotional regulation about the current situation or problem.

The detachment that being in the third-person offers, removes the inherent emotional bias that one has, but is unaware of.
