FOLK CONCEPTIONS OF WISE PERSON'S PERSONALITY IN ASIAN CULTURES
Languages of publication
Research in folk conceptions is one of the supporting pillars of psychological approaches to the study of wisdom. We have administered to a religiously diverse sample of Asian university students (n = 646) a questionnaire of our own design focused on deepening our knowledge of the personality context of Eastern wisdom. Results obtained from a factor analysis (partially in agreement with findings of other authors) indicate that in the context of present understanding of the East it is also appropriate to consider wisdom in relation to emotionality, motivation and social skills.
