Being wise vs Being intelligent

July 07, 2020

    • A wise person has a higher than average outcome in a lot of situations.
    • An intelligent person has a particularly good outcome in a small set of situations.
    • Intelligence is the peak and wisdom is the average of the same curve.

      • A high average will support high peaks.
    • In the same vein, in software engineering high averages (knowing a bit about a lot of things) will support high peaks (knowing in depth about a specific thing).
