in most instances, probably yes. experience, for example, often teaches people things like humility and understanding for others very astute, wise and aware parents, however, can teach these things to their kids, but many do not bother.
Knowledge and Experience is information.<br />
What we take away from knowledge and experience - or how we perceive and apply it (or feel about it) is what makes determinations as to how open we are. A bigot that knows no other way or no other value than his would be considered narrow minded in circles where bigotry is shunned. This same Bigot may be considered a sage in his own circle. The Bigot goes away on a retreat and learns that his prejudices are incorrect. He then has opportunity to accept this information and change his view, making him more open minded. He could also disregard this information and deny its truth, keeping his narrow field of perspective.
Knowledge is knowing a thing is true. Experience is realizing how often information isn't knowledge:)
We acquire knowledge through experience.However.knowledge is useless unless one has the wisdom to apply that knowledge wisely and ob<x>jectively.
