Intelligence Vs Wisdom

Curiosity, interest, initiative & exertion leads to “Learning”, which helps to use his “Intelligence” for understanding, analysis & interpretation to acquire “Knowledge”. If he uses his intelligence in applying the knowledge at correct time & place, using discretion, to right people or thing , for maximum advantage & meaningful expression or result, will indicate “Wisdom”.

few practical illustrations

Example 1. An ant, being a less intelligent creature or specie, starts from it’s home, travels a long distance, picks up the food, returns to home with it’s God given intelligence & is wise to fulfill it’s objective. Human type of intelligence is not required for the ant for it’s purpose.

Example 2. A boy has curiosity to know about cycling, so that he can benefit, going to the school by bicycle. Mere curiosity does not help. He must show interest, take initiative & exert himself to “Learn”. He should apply his mind & have keen observation, understanding, analyzing & interpreting different sequences & techniques of learning, using his “Intelligence”. This leads to acquisition of “Knowledge” of cycling. Once he acquires his knowledge, he has to apply it practically. His “Wisdom” now suggests, how “intelligently” he should apply his Knowledge “Wisely”, for practical utility. If he rides the bicycle in rough roads, full of sand, mud & stone pebbles, the life of the bicycle will become short, necessitating frequent maintenance, added to the inconvenience of riding. His “Wisdom” should select the appropriate road for joyful riding with minimum of wear & tear of the bicycle, at the same time, reducing the travel time.

Example 3. Any Nation progressing very intelligently, can amass highly sophisticated weapons of war, but if “Wisdom” is not used, any silly reason can ruin the country, it’s assets & properties & taking the lives of millions of innocent people, who are building the Nation for centuries of growth & prosperity. Miscalculated “Wisdom” can bring in “Self Ruin”.

Formula for progress would be :   CURIOSITY—->INTEREST—->INITIATIVE—->EXERTION—->LEARNING→->INTELLIGENCE—->KNOWLEDGE—->WISDOM.

 Intelligence and Wisdom are two qualities that are attached with the mental capabilities and skills of human beings. There are many points which create a few difference between these similar terms.

Found some interesting differences between Intelligence and Wisdom; Enjoy reading and analyzing them !!!!

Intelligence leads to arguments.
Wisdom leads to settlements.

Intelligence is power of will.
Wisdom is power OVER will.

Intelligence is heat, it burns.
Wisdom is warmth, it comforts.

Intelligence is pursuit of knowledge, it tires the seeker.
Wisdom is pursuit of truth, it inspires the seeker.

Intelligence is holding on.
Wisdom is letting go.

Intelligence leads you.
Wisdom guides you.

An intelligent man thinks he knows everything.
A wise man knows that there is still something to learn.

An intelligent man always tries to prove his point.
A wise man knows there really is no point.

An intelligent man freely gives unsolicited advice.
A wise man keeps his counsel until all options are considered.

An intelligent man understands what is being said.
A wise man understands what is left unsaid.

An intelligent man speaks when he has to say something.
A wise man speaks when he has something to say.

An intelligent man sees everything as relative.
A wise man sees everything as related.

An intelligent man tries to control the mass flow.
A wise man navigates the mass flow.

An intelligent man preaches.
A wise man reaches.

Finally, conclude : 

Intelligence is good
but Wisdom achieves better results.
