  • Robert Sternberg writes
  • Intelligence broadly defined (ie
    problem-solving), is important for success in
    life, but so is wisdom...

32
  • .One needs creative abilities to come up with
    ideas.
  • One needs analytical abilities to decide whether
    one's own ideas (and those of others) are good
    ideas.
  • One needs practical abilities to make ideas
    functional and to persuade other people of the
    value of these ideas.

33
  • ...But one needs wisdom to balance the
    effects of one's ideas not just on oneself, but
    on others and on institutions as well, both in
    the short and the long terms.
  • Robert Sternberg (2003) Wisdom and education In
    Gifted Education International Vol 17 No 3
