Wisdom in a complex world: Measurement, utility, and interventions

Philosophers argue that knowledge is insufficient for wisdom. Instead, they have argued that wisdom requires certain aspects of meta-cognition to flexibility navigate complex environments without a clearly-defined decision space: epistemic humility, consideration of multiple perspectives and ways a situation may unfold, observer viewpoint on a situation, and integration of different perspectives. First, I will showcase the psychological utility of these meta-cognitive processes for goal-management, well-being and prosociality. Next, I will examine situational contingencies inhibiting or promoting these aspects of meta-cognition in daily life.
