    I don't think that suffering alone makes someone wise, its rather how one handles and escapes (or enjoys ) suffering. You have to live a challenging life to gain experience. Falling into trouble or consciously taking risks and then handling the consequences "the right way" (by learning from them) makes someone wise. Learning from books also gives a kind of wisdom but nothing beats real life experience. The best is the right combination of both coupled with sane realist thinking.

    In my opinion gaining wisdom at a "good" or "above average" rate requires a given type to be in the right (challenging enough) environment (for the given type) prepared with the right mindset.

    Ins in general are the wisest
    In order for society to survive, we must all pitch in and cooperate with one another, split the resources fairly.
    If we get greedy, everything will fall apart
    The main reason why there is no long peace is because everything is set and stone.
    Another is that resources are limited and the ones who had the most goes bad because they are in control.

    domain in which it is clear and adequate….

    The people who learn the best from life experiences are the wisest. Not age related necessarily or type related at all.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Not type-related. I have been told by many people (of various types) that I am a "wise soul" and perceptive and I am just a lowly, brain-dead ENFJ who can't think for themselves...
