  Wisdom and Interpersonal Relationships

When you're learning more about interpersonal relationships, it can be difficult to know where to begin. How do you make friends with people? When should you ask someone out on a date? What does it mean when someone says "you complete me"? If that's overwhelming, then this article is for you. It's all about the ways that wisdom can impact your relationships in positive and negative ways in both romantic and platonic contexts. Plus, there are some handy tips for making improvements to your personality based on research--and they're definitely worth a shot!

A wise person is usually perceived as someone who has the ability to evaluate a situation objectively before taking action or providing advice. The definition of wisdom can vary from person to person, but there are many different aspects to it.

A wise person is someone who:

Understanding these different faces of wisdom can make a big difference in the way you perceive yourself and others. Effective ways to apply this wisdom include:

The Wise Course of Action

1. Don't Be Rash or Imprudent

It may be tempting to impulsively take action when you're angry or upset, but that kind of behavior won't help anyone get closer together--especially if it keeps you apart. At those times when you're feeling an intense emotion like anger or fear, take a deep breath and just stop for a moment . Think about the reasons why you're upset in the first place, and then try to think through what your next course of action should be.

2. Stay in the Present Moment

A wise person is able to stay present in the moment so that they can avoid regrets later on--regrets like thinking back on a time when they said something stupid or taking action without thinking it through first.

3. Exercise Your Intentions

You know what's supposed to happen, but when you get into daydreaming mode, people can misinterpret your intentions and actions (even if you mean them for your own good), which can lead to feeling foolish. This is especially true if you're trying to make impression on someone new. In those situations, you want to be sure that your intentions are clear and that they're actions that would be considered acceptable in any given situation.

4. Don't Pretend to Be Someone You Aren't

It's hard to know what people might think of you, but it's a safe bet that a person who's wise isn't someone who's putting on an act or pretending they're something they're not. It's difficult to have a true relationship with someone when your feelings and intentions aren't honest.

5. Become More Sensitive

This certainly isn't an easy thing to do, but it is very important. Becoming more sensitive will help you be more observant of others, and this can sometimes help you discover a hidden gem--someone who can be a true friend.

6. Get to Know Your Interpersonal Dynamics

Your interpersonal behavior is what makes you the person that you are, and understanding what makes another person tick can help you become closer with them--or even someone who they trust implicitly. However, it's not always that clear cut, and sometimes two individuals may see things differently. This can lead to misunderstandings.

What You Can Do With Your Wisdom-Based Skills

Hopefully you realized the value of your own personal wisdom, and now that you know more about the different aspects of wisdom you can enjoy the benefits of having a better understanding. Here are some tips for how to take this information and apply it in different ways:

1. Make Changes to Your Personality

If you feel that no one sees the real you, then this may be an indication that your interpersonal behaviors are not as authentic as they could be. You can make changes by becoming more aware of your personality, and determining your true tendencies.

2. Follow Your Intuitions

Sometimes we feel like we're being led astray, but that doesn't mean we're wrong--because the truth is that our intuition knows what's best for us. So trust it more and be less afraid of making mistakes because you did what felt right to you.

3. Become a Leader in Your Area of Interest

Once you've determined your personality traits, you can incorporate them in different areas, such as school or work. This will make it easier to keep track of your tendencies, and it will also give you a way to improve by observing other people's behaviors in these areas.

4. Have a More Harmonious Relationship

You want to make relationships better, and what better way to do that than to understand them? If you have the wisdom-based skills necessary to understand a relationship on a deeper level, then you'll begin to feel far more comfortable in your own skin.

5. Make More Friends

A quality friend will share your passions and interests. Even if it isn't completely clear where you stand with someone at first, if they're someone who's worthy of knowing, they'll remain in your life because their feelings for you are genuine.

6. Practice Acceptance

We all experience disappointment, and at those times when you're feeling negative emotions or seeing red flags, it's important to resist the impulse to take action. Instead of making rash decisions without thinking, take the time to talk things through with someone you trust--or even a professional therapist.

7. Be a Better Leader

If you take on leadership roles in various areas of your life, and you use your wisdom-based skills for evaluating what's going on at any given time, then you'll be more effective in handling situations that are challenging. 8. Understand how others feel

Even if you do nothing else with this information, having a more profound sense of empathy can make you feel better about yourself. People will like you more, and your relationships will be better because of it. With so many ways that wisdom can be applied in your life, it's worth giving yourself the chance to explore it further.
