How Wise Are You?

Wisdom is the power to see the world as it really is, uncolored by the suggestions of others or your own desires for how it should be. An I.Q. test may quantify your intelligence and an achievement test might measure the acquirement of knowledge, but true wisdom must be measured in terms of judgment and insight. While no one likes a "know it all," you probably consider yourself smart enough to recognize the difference between right and wrong. But does that make you wise? Are you really as objective as you'd like to believe?

This short quiz will have you looking deep into your psyche for the answers that show how wise you really are. You're only a few minutes (twelve questions!) from discovering your true level of wisdom. Along the way, you may even learn a little more about yourself. Are you qualified to stuff your own fortune cookies? C'mon, Confucius, let's find out!
