Judith  Glück - Wisdom


Five resources for a good life

It is simpler to recognise a wise person than to try to describe wisdom itself. Many of us would immediately think of the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, or Pope Francis. But what constitutes their wisdom? And what exactly does wisdom mean? Is it a gift some people naturally have, or can it be learned?

The wisdom researcher Judith Glück, seeking to answer these questions, has discovered five characteristics that people with wisdom possess: openness for new perspectives, an ability to reflect, an intelligent relationship with one’s own emotions, empathy, and self-trust. Making use of these resources, we can succeed in drawing wisdom from our life experiences.
