Difference between an intelligent person and a wise person

The difference between intelligence and wisdom.

Wisdom seems to be an ability to choose or understand the difference between what is good and bad, what is better or worse…and it can be accumulated over time, thanks to different experiences. For example a wise person might know how to design a nuclear weapon but will instead understand very soon the negative consequences of building such weapons.

A wise person: Elon Musk’s view on Al. Considers the future Al and sees the dangers of humanity. He thinks abiut how to do it beneficially.

Intelligence is an innate ability to understand and resolve issues/problems. An intelligent person just want to give a solution to a problem they will resolve the issues mistakes things worse. Example; the invention of the automatic bomb and other nuclear weapons, they’ve increasingly put the world just seconds away from extictionin case of an all-out nuclear war.
