Elaboration on the Culturally Informed Iranian Hierarchical Wisdom Model: Comparison with Sternberg's ACCEL Model
Karami, Sareh; Ghahremani, Mehdi
Roeper Review, v39 n4 p234-238 2017
Using a grounded theory approach to the study of historical texts and an expert interview, we developed the Iranian hierarchical wisdom model (IHWM; Karami & Ghahremani, 2016). According to IHWM, there are three levels to wisdom: practical intelligence, wise, and sage. In this article, we discuss the model and elaborate on it. Next, we examine how the IHWM is connected to Sternberg's Active Concerned Citizenship and Ethical Leadership Model (ACCEL; Sternberg, 2017). We discuss the importance of advanced thinking skills in both models. The other similarity between the two models is the importance of making positive, meaningful, and enduring differences to the world. However, the IHWM's priority is self-actualization and personal integrity. Further, IHWM as a culturally informed wisdom model perceives teaching as the best means to achieve this goal, rather than "leadership" positions. [This article responds to Robert Sternberg's July 2017 article, "ACCEL: A New Model for Identifying the Gifted" (EJ1148989).]
