  • Yes and No... With Age comes Experience, And with Experience SHOULD come Wisdom... Unfortunately it doesn't always work that way!

  • Not necessarily. There are a lot of stupid people out there who should know better at their age. I also think there is something to be said about following your gut when you're making decisions. I remember being "young and stupid" and making some of the best choices in my life.

  • I used to, but I see a lot of people who lack common sense and empathy for others. I think wisdom has to be taught. It isn't something we automatically acquire as we age.

  • Wisdom comes with Maturity and life experience.
    Some grow old and do not have the maturity to know what wisdom is...
    At times I have heard that a person that has an old soul has more wisdom then a person with a young soul...because in some cultures they believe in the afterlife that we lives many lives until we reach a certain point and have complete wisdom.
    Yeah I do alot of reading, lol

  • I've known some young people who were wise beyond their years and have also known some very foolish older people.

  • Yes I agree,because every day we learn through a lot of ways,sometimes from experiences,mistakes,and even others mistakes too,even through our kids,so,by the time you are older,you are wiser for having learned,experienced,etc..in total..life teaches you as you go.

  • Sometimes, but only because with age comes experience. However, sometimes you experience more when you are young and therefore mature faster and learn from your mistakes sooner. It all depends on your life experiences.
