There are 3 types of wisdom.
1. Wisdom acquired while growing..
The wisdom on how to survive in the general life set up.
2. Wisdom acquired while in school.
This is the wisdom always in knowledge form while learning. Well known as education.

God asked Solomon, Tell me what you want?
And Solomon brilliantly answered, “I want Wisdom from you (God). ”
