Wisdom can be perceived very differently by different people. Regardless, true wisdom is shown when people are able to judge fairly and show effective management in all their roles. As a father, he raises his children with morals and dignity, and helps them to become great fathers someday. As an entrepreneur, he is able to make intelligent decisions that tend to flourish his business. As a student, he knows how to approach academic studies and shows diligence, which ultimately lead to excellent outcomes. As a friend, he is able to fulfil his duties in the manner of being supportive, tolerant, and willing to help.

 A wise person is a person who excels in virtually all areas of his life. Bear in mind that a wise person will keep healthy, avoid troubles, find solutions to his problems, and strive towards making a difference in his lifetime. It should be noted that a wise person 

Is highly perceptive

Wise people are both intelligent and knowledgeable. They are always learning from experiences (both good and bad), and they work hard at making better decisions. While learning from experiences, they devise new and sound ways to confront familiar challenges. They focus on protecting their future, even as they enjoy and value the present. They are not myopic, and always consider the possible consequences of their actions. 

Thinks deeply and observes carefully before making decisions

Wise people do not make decisions on impulse. They consider numerous alternatives and look for the best among these alternatives. They put into consideration the costs and benefits of the choices they are about to make; they consider the consequences of their actions. 

Is always willing to learn

Truly wise people do not believe they know it all. No matter how much they know, they are always eager to learn. They will listen to you with the hope to learn one or two things from you. They study a lot, observe, and try to understand complex matters. And when they are not reading books or learning from other people, they spend time creating and analyzing in their heads. 

Manages his/her available resources effectively

Wise people are not lavishing. They use up their resources for meaningful reasons and enjoy the benefit. They smile at the end of each day, knowing that they lived to their satisfaction; they have fewer regrets and are cognizant of how they use their time and money. 

Is open-minded

Wise people are always willing to entertain new ideas. They are also willing to accept that they were wrong, made a mistake, could have made a wiser decision, are not infallible, etc. They are always eager to accommodate other people’s opinions, and are not too arrogant to accept that other people are right and they are wrong. 

Sets meaningful goals

A wise person doesn’t lay about doing nothing. He/she doesn’t waste time brooding over those who have offended him/her. Wise people always set meaningful goals and strive to achieve them. They go through the rigor and ordeal of achieving their goals, but understand that such experiences are both necessary and fulfilling. 

Is not overly concerned with wealth

Wise people want to be rich and comfortable, but they understand the vanity in buying highly expensive things in order to impress other people. They understand that there is no genuine fulfilment in living “the life on a fab lane”. They focus on career and intellectual success, and make do with the money they make as a result. 

Exhibits self-control

Wise people have admirable control over negative emotions. They are stoic in the face of danger, and are emotionally composed in times of adversity. They scarcely show anger, resentment, frustration, and envy, and are tremendously able to keep calm as though they are superhumans. 

Is proactive

Wise people know how to avoid problems from escalating, and tend to deal with the issues at their earliest/latent stage. They are also astute enough to predict the possibility of an undesirable event from occurring if certain actions are not taken. Their ability to predict and discern problems in their latent stage enables them get through life facing less hardships. 

Endures for the greater good

A wise person will pass through difficult times and make agonizing decisions with the belief that these actions will enable him/her to achieve a highly valued goal. He/ She will endure hate-treatment, humiliation and derision with the hope that they may achieve a much desired goal.
