Defining Intelligence and Wisdom

by Priscila Azeredo de Souza, 35yrs, London, UK

I am re-claiming my wisdom. I am a very wise woman, innately. My inner-heart knows everything and it considers everyone, spherically.

I became an intelligent woman… I learned how to be intelligent so I could hide my wisdom behind it.

How?

Intelligence does not challenge anyone; intelligence is challengeable. It lets irresponsibility have its way.

Intelligence is weak; it stands in the uncertainty, and on sloppy grounds.

Intelligence is selfish and it fosters separation. It’s a very sophisticated and calculated tool used to gain over others.

Intelligence is draining; it constantly needs to prove itself.

Intelligence plays games. It studies the adversary and cleverly puts him/her down.

Intelligence judges – more intelligent, less intelligent.

It fights, and it tries to prove itself.

Wisdom is different.

Wisdom asks you to be all that you are, to be true, to be responsible, to be an equal.

Wisdom challenges irresponsibility, wisdom challenges intelligence, wisdom challenges arrogance.

And it does it naturally so.

Wisdom does not fight, only presents.

Wisdom does not judge. It holds an understanding.

Wisdom does not play games. It knows the other person is equally wise and it calls us up, “Hey, what are you doing? You know you are Wise”.

I am very blessed to have so many wise people around me – they inspire me to be equally wise.

Wisdom is the intelligence of the inner-heart.

I am re-claiming my wisdom. I am a very wise woman.

  1. I feel very blessed to know the difference between the two. En mass in society we are taught to foster and champion intelligence but ignore its shortfalls and blatant errors, covering them up with good, reason, logic and justification. Wisdom doesn’t hide anything, it presents its riches and mistakes which are areas for growth.

  2. Intelligence is very separated from life, whereas wisdom is very related to every part of life. I enjoyed reading about the differences of intelligence and wisdom, particularly “Wisdom asks you to be all that you are, to be true, to be responsible, to be an equal.” Intelligence is often used for individuality, and to compare ourselves as either superior or inferior. Whilst it’s true we need intelligence for the systems of life, it’s actually wisdom that’s lived.

  3. “Intelligence plays games. It studies the adversary and cleverly puts him/her down.” This is very true and succinctly stated. Wisdom on the other hand knows what to say to restore, heal, and support a person to rise up out of anything that is not true and reconnect to what is.

  4. How true you words Priscila, as I read your bolg I can’t help be be inspired to move forward to this divine wisdom within me.
