When you know something and tell people you know it, when you do not know something and admit that you do not know it, it is a display of wisdom.
When there is something you should know but you do not, when you mistakenly think you know something that you do not know, it is an anouncement of lack of wisdom.

In addition, I always remember:
To admit that there is something we do not know is a virtue. To pretend to know something that we do not know is a vice.

Dear Joseph,

How wonderful to start the New Year with pearls of wisdom.

Thanks to you many of us know to seek the one water and mountain stars to arm ourselves in wisdom.

Happy New Year, Shifu.
