Can something as subjective as wisdom be measured like stress or cholesterol? Some researchers have been trying to do just that.  Among them is Monika Ardelt, a sociology professor at the University of Florida in Gainesville.  Ardelt developed a questionnaire that attempts to assess how wise people are.  The questionnaire contains 39 statements in three dimensions – cognitive, reflective and affective.  Press the begin button below to answer the questionnaire.  Once you have completed all the questions, you can see your wisdom score by pressing the results button.
