Intelligence, experience, and wisdom

Experience without intelligence is just information or a walking encyclopedia. Intelligence without experience is knowledge and knowledge without experience is unwise.

Experiences can be bought (and some say they are better than stuff). Intelligence can not be bought with money (but some say it can be developed through effort and time).

Ideally one should strive for a balance. The strategy of education is loosely to add experiences until they match our intelligence. But what method if any exists to increase intelligence to match our experiences? Expert advisers?

Comment: Incidentally, I am not completely happy with this diagram. I am thinking of switching information (objective) with experience (subjective) to have objective variables but subjective fields and balances.
