Introduction: The current study investigated the underlying relationship between the concepts of wisdom in two different theoretical approaches.
Method: Data were obtained from a sample of 155 Tehran citizens over the age of 18 who were randomly selected trough the multi-stage cluster sampling method. The study used two scales including the Self-Assessed Wisdom Scale (comprising critical experience, emotion regulation, reminiscence and reflectiveness, openness, humor) and Wisdom-Related Performance (comprising factual knowledge, procedural knowledge, life span contextualism, relativism of values and recognition and management of uncertainty).
Results: Obtained data were analyzed using the canonical correlation demonstrating little variance between the two sets of variables of wisdom.
Conclusion: Current findings indicated some similarities and differences between the two approaches to the concept of wisdom. However, part of such differences in approaches to wisdom appear to originate from the weigh given to each aspect of the concept by theorists and researchers.
