Wisdom

Wisdom, sapience, or sagacity is the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense and insight. Wisdom is associated with attributes such as unbiased judgment, compassion, experiential self-knowledge, self-transcendence and non-attachment, and virtues such as ethics and benevolence.

Wisdom is the combination of experience, knowledge and careful judgment. If you’ve got it, you’re “wise.” If you haven’t, well don’t worry, most of us don’t either.
