    A couple of little notes for other posters in this thread:

    1. Wisdom comes from the Lord? Unless you want to turn this thread into an anti-Christian flamefest you may want to reconsider posting your religious views here, thanks. Sorry but there is something about the endless proselytizing which I find very irritating. (I posted, and then deleted a message after I thought better of it).

    2. Humans are no better than dogs or cats. In fact, we are probably less wise than they are given that we are wantonly destroying the world we live in despite knowing better. Dogs and cats have figured out a way to prosper by letting humans do all the hard work for them. All they have to do is be cute. THAT is wisdom!

    Wisdom of course !

    An intelligent but naive/unwise person can easily be misled, taken
    advantage of, brainwashed and manipulated by unscrupulous people. Wise men won't. It also takes a fair amount of intelligence to be wise, but a intelligent person might be completely devoid of wisdom. In other words, a wise man is an intelligent man, an intelligent man may not be a wise man.

    Thus, its better to be a wise guy then a smart ass

    And I agree with Amfibius : lay off the religious talk.

    this I agree with. I have come across an intelligent person with super lousy EQ & zero foresight where the consequences of her words and actions are concerned.

    You can study for intelligence but you have to earn your wisdom.
