The Concept of Wisdom in Turkish Cultural Context
Lay perceptions on the content and definition of wisdom were investigated to explore the implicit theories of wisdom in Turkish cultural context. In the first study, classical implicit theories of wisdom approach was used by asking participants to describe their wisdom conceptions. Twenty seven (Mage = 26.41, SD = 2.90) participants were asked to list wisdom related conceptions in an open-ended question. Results revealed 13 higher-order categories. In the second study, 107 (Mage = 21.57, SD = 1.76) participants rated existing categories. Result of the factor analyses revealed two main categories; interactional-affective and contemplative cognitive. Findings are discussed considering the relevant literature.
