People lacking wisdom may be considered foolish or arrogant. They do not learn from their mistakes, and they lack understanding and insight.
Enemies of Wisdom:
- Laziness – When personal comfort is a high priority and little effort is put into making decisions, wisdom will be elusive
- Impulsiveness – Leads to decisions that feel good in the moment but yield loss and regret
- Naivete – Gullible people are easily swayed and innocently believe whatever they are told
“Any fool can know. The point is to understand.” Albert Einstein
