Who is considered as the wisest person?

April 7, 2010 9:50am CST
Since I am doing a survey for my college thesis, I think its a good place to collect some answers about wisdom here. 1. What do you think is the wisest person, and why? 2. What are the main factors that make one wise? thank you!

hi siswa, in my limited view, the wiser people around us are those who have had the experience, information and wisdom to have gone through life. they are the ones who possess a strong survival advantage. look no further as you can see them in our grandparents, in our parents and in our big family and friends.

Hello, Well, I don't want to sound weird, but I think there is no such thing as the wisest. Anyone can be wise if he wishes to. Then why there are not many wise persons around us? Let me repeat what I said, "Anyone can be wise if he wishes to." How many people among us wants to be wise just because he loves wisdom? Most of us confuse education with wisdom. The rest always have some ulterior motifs, some intention to gain materially from their wisdom. Wisdom can't be achieved with such fragile state of mind. I personally believe that a man always has the thing he bears a strong wish for. Wise person has his own expenses to pay. He is neither elated nor depressed by every little joy or sorrow. Now this often sounds aberrant and unattainable state of mind to the ordinary men. Wisdom really can't be acquired by reading books in vast amount. Love, directed to the right path, is the greatest wisdom. Kindness, happiness, serenity or anything of that sort may come as a result of wisdom itself. God bless you

A person who is well equipped...both mentally and physically. He is the one who thinks positively and act in accordance with it.

I don't think there is a wisest person, after all, a person can be very very clever and yet make silly mistakes in every day life. The wise person would be the one who does not always want their opinion to be heard first, they will wait and see what other people think and evaluate everything. The wise person need not always be the cleverest one.

I think king solomon from the bible history can be considered. 1. knows the best way to answer a problem. I think it has a lot of exposure or had encountered most of all problem in life. A person with a high sense of understanding. 2. Had been with a lot of wise teacher, A genuis one, a gifted person
