Wisdom

Wisdom is the integration of disparate pieces of knowledge and experiences and working to formulate an cohesive overarching picture of those pieces. The larger and more disparate the knowledge and experiences, the deeper and more insightful the wisdom can become. However, if we have widely varying experiences, but now the knowledge to connect them together, we may formulate incorrect assumptions which will hurt us later on, or the cognitive dissonance will continue to bother us.
