    Intelligence is mostly based on education whereas wisdom is based mostly on experience. Intelligence is the ability to do something wisdom the understanding on whether that something should be done or not.

    A person can use their intelligence to learn how to build a bomb but lack the wisdom to know it's the wrong thing to do. Wisdom without intelligence is Forest Gump. Intelligence without wisdom is the CIA.

    Intelligence is the way our brain handles problems, solves mathematics, creates success, and invests talents.
    Wisdom is the way intelligence is directed.

    Intelligence is the capacity to think through a problem to arrive at an answer. Wisdom is knowing if it is worth thinking about.

    Intelligence is like Potential Energy, while Wisdom is like Kinetic Energy.
    The higher the PE the more KE that can happen.

    Another way to look at it is Intelligence is Academics smarts, while Wisdom is Street Smarts.

    Or yet another way to look at it is Intelligence is what your brain is capable of, while Wisdom is how well you have used that capability.

    Intelligence is a given,(static)  to what ever degree it exists. Wisdom (dynamic) can change with experience and training.

    Intelligence is how well one is able to retain and present what they have obtained from others.  When one takes the "IQ Test" they are being examined on how well they retain what was taught them by other man.

    Wisdom is finding causes behind effects by seeing all thing in its 360 degrees rather than in its parts man's maintaining the belief in good and evil  causes.  When one seeks wisdom they must reject the "judgmental adjectives," which is the cause of all of our emotions, and learn to become objective observers, participators to discover and reason with the various outcomes in order to explain our findings to others, which is the actual definition of "educate".
