Wisdom in the News

The Wisdom Scorecard, Monika Ardelt, May 6, 2007

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.
