What is wisdom?

An important aspect of wisdom is the deep knowledge that one gains from life experience, i.e. knowledge about life in general, about people and also about oneself. At the same time, wisdom knowledge is actually knowledge about not-knowing, because many things people simply cannot know, and one can never make fixed predictions. But only a general emotional calmness and composure enable a certain attitude, which allows wise people to use their own knowledge in difficult situations.

However, wise people do not only have resources for a successful life at an advanced age, because they are also open to new things at an earlier stage and are prepared to accept other points of view. Above all, wise people deal wisely with their own feelings, can put themselves in the shoes of others, want to understand complex interrelationships and often question themselves.Wise people have the insight that humans have only limited control over the things that happen in life.
