Abstract

Psychological research on wisdom began to develop since a few years ago. However, research in the topic is rather rare in Indonesia. The purpose of this study was 1) to know the concept of wisdom in Buginess-Makassar 2) to know who are considered as a wise figure. The subject of this study is 202 students, the participants is high school students in South Sulawesi by placing an open question questionnaire. The data collected were analyzed using indigenous psychological approach, open-ended response analysis, through open-coded, axial-coded categorization, and then cross-tabulated. The results show the concept understood by students is a form of behavior that is more to the ability to find the right decision. While the figure that is considered wise is the Prophet Muhammad. Research on wisdom in Indonesia can still be developed even further. In this study there are factors that influence the choice. The election of Prophet Muhammad as a wise person also corresponds with previous research, whether advanced culture according to that choice.
