Abstract: The current study was designed to explore the potential relationship of wisdom with age and gender. A sample of 400 individuals, representative of both genders (men= 185 & women= 215 with age range 17-50 years) was drawn from various educational institutions and work places of Khyber Pukhtunkhwa. Ardelt's (2003) three-dimensional wisdom scale (3D-WS) was used as a tool to collect the relevant information. According to results, gender accounted for significant variation in wisdom. However, there was no significant gender difference on the cognitive dimension that indicates that, on average, men and women, are equally high in cognitive aspect of wisdom. A strong relationship was also observed between age and wisdom attesting wisdom as dependent on age.
