Intellectual Wellness is the strong desire to learn from challenges and experiences. It encourages ongoing intellectual growth, and creative yet stimulating mental activities which provide the foundation to discover, process, and evaluate information.
Valuing education and engaging in lifelong learning are the keys to intellectual wellness. It involves the pursuit of activities that increase knowledge, develop moral reasoning, foster critical thinking, and expand worldviews. The intellectually well person values intuition, empathy, and understanding as forms of knowing.
