Are You Wiser than a Young Person?

There are days when I do not feel wiser than a rock.  There are some days when my feeling of wisdom surpasses any philosopher of all times.  How about you?

Read this quote from Discovery Channel and tell me what you think, please.

"Scientists and psychologists have been grappling with the question of "what makes a person wise?" for many years. Many cultures believe that wisdom is a trait accrues with age. However, research into peoples' perception of what constitutes wisdom shows that wisdom also includes intelligence, emotional stability, problem solving, superior judgment, humility and openness. All factors that the young and old can have in equal measure. Consequently, while being older may equate to increased wisdom it does not necessarily mean that old people are wiser."
