From The New York Times (6th May, 2007)
Can something as subjective as wisdom be measured like stress or cholesterol? Some researchers have been trying to do just that. Among them is Monika Ardelt, a Sociology professor at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Ardelt developed a questionnaire that attempts to assess how wise people are. The questionnaire contains 39 statements in three dimensions: cognitive, reflective and affective.
