Let us distinguish the difference between knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge is the facts, information, and skills acquired by a person through experience or education or the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject. Wisdom, on the other hand, is the soundness of an action or decision with regard to the application of experience, knowledge and good judgment. Statistics and facts are knowledge, how we deal with data is wisdom. 

Comparison between knowledge and wisdom
Knowledge Wisdom
  • Allows for change in response to new information or analyses. Seeks to always improve.
 

  • Timeless. 
  • Wisdom is “Who we are” vs. “What we do” 
  • Wisdom governs choice, the pursuit of knowledge, communication, and relationships.

 

  • Learning, education, science, reflection, reasoned, and logical thought.
 

  • Self. Intuition. 
  • Our personal experience. 
  • Wisdom defines and refines our character. “Character is simply who we are and is the persona and identity of everything we do.”

 

Knowledge is gained from learning facts. Wisdom comes from observing experiences and learning from them. Knowing what is the right and wise thing to do in the future and actually doing it.

Having a lot of knowledge is nothing if we do not apply it wisely. The true essence of being knowledgeable is applying all your know-how to life and sharing it with others.
