S3 Ep27: Are Older People Wiser?

  • Aired: 07/06/2017
  • 06:13
  • Rating: NR
Some perspectives on wisdom, from both psychological research and my Nana. It turns out that both reveal it's much more nuanced than saying "older people are wiser" – there are different types of wisdom, wisdom is positively correlated with personality traits and wisdom can even be learned.
