The ability to discern beyond the superficial. True wisdom is not based on our experiences, knowledge or intellect. This is worldly wisdom. In fact, it is far superior than the aforementioned. Godly wisdom is only granted/given by God alone. The Bible says that wisdom is far more better to have than riches. It also says that we should ask for God’s wisdom in everything and not to rely on our understanding.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Wisdom is knowing what you know as well as what you dont know.
Wisdom is not not simply knowing what to do, but doing it.
Many people will without invitation offer their "words of wisdom", wise people realise when it is not their time or place to do so.
A wise person does not think less of another who chooses not to follow their advice.
Wisdom is not undermining a person for their weaknesses, but appreciating their strengths differ from yours.

"Wisdom is defined as the application of practical knowledge not written down and written knowledge guided by ethics toward the achievement of a common good. It balances our (a) individual interests, (b) our close relationships interests, and (c) society interests. Through this we choose the best paths in life (a) adaptation to our environment, (b) changing our environments, and or (c) selecting the best new environment."
According to Dr. Robert Sternberg
Bill Clinton did not show wisdom in the Monica Lewinsky scandal. He let his short term individual pleasures overcome his interests as president, for his family, and for the American people who lost faith in him. He almost got impeached for his actions.

In contrast a minority student balances his family interests for not an expensive school as they are helping him pay, as well as his own interests in education, and so enrolls in a community college on the way to his bachelor degree to save two years of money in tuition expenses on route to completing his four year bachelors degree.
