Barry Schwartz on TEDtalks: The real crisis? We stopped being wise

This is one of best TED lectures I’ve seen:   You don’t need to be brilliant in order to be wise.  Without wisdom, brilliance isn’t enough.  A wise person knows when to improvise, like a jazz musician.   A wise person is made,  NOT born.  Wisdom depends on experience.  It takes a lot of experience to learn to care for people.

This has important implications for education and the workplace.


Motherhood has a very humanizing effect. Everything gets reduced to essentials. ~Meryl Streep
