WEB DESK: If you have someone who can give sound advises then consider yourself lucky. Because, people rarely have anyone like that. Besides this, if a person has ability to decide or to react according to the situation, it too makes him/her wise.
If you wish to learn if you are a wise person or not, here is a quick way to find it out. These are basically six questions which are devised by a psychiatry professor, Dilip Jeste and his colleagues at the University of California. Moreover, this study was done on 524 adults. The candidates were assigned six questions which is called San Diego Wisdom Scale (SD-WISE). From the number, participants scored determined the amount of wisdom they have.
Also, to find out your level of wisdom, you will be needing to rate yourself on a scale of one to five about how much do you agree with the given statements.
- I enjoy being exposed to diverse viewpoints.
- I have a difficult time keeping friendships.
- It is important that I understand my actions.
- cannot filter my negative emotions.
- I tend to postpone making major decisions as long as I can.
- Others look to me to help them make choices.
Later, add your scores that you have gotten from these questions. Then, minus the numbers from questions 2,4 and 5. If final number is more than 10, you are a wise person, congratulations! But don’t feel bad if the final number came out less than eight.
