What is Wisdom?

pfeffer-suttonIn their book, Hard Facts, Dangerous Half-Truths and Total Nonsense: Profiting from evidence-based management, Pfeffer and Sutton (2006, p.174) define wisdom is “the ability to act with knowledge, while doubting what you know“.

While I’m agree with the first part of their definition but not the second part. I define wisdom is the ability to act with knowledge, while acknowledge the limitation of what you know.
