Smartness, intelligence, and wiseness

A photo of Stranger Stranger
Those are all subjective, but what do they mean to you?
Do you consider yourself smart/intelligent/wise and to what degree?

Is wiseness even a word?

To me, smart and intelligent are completely interchangeable. They can refer to knowledge, competence, or just common sense. But wisdom refers more to what you've learned from life experiences, and how you apply it.

Sounds awkward nonetheless. I'll stick to wisdom.

I use smart and intelligent interchangeably. Could refer to academic/street/athletic/interpersonal intelligence. I'd say I have academic and interpersonal smarts. Wouldn't consider myself wise though, I really don't think anyone under 30 can claim that, it comes with age and life experience.
