|Oblivious by Michael Wood|
Wisdom represents your man's powers of observation, his intuition, and the sum total of the knowledge he has gained through passive observation of people, places and things. Generally, someone is wiser when they are older than when they are younger, but they might not have been too wise to start with! So what can you say about a character who has a Wisdom of 3?
This was a hard one for me. I suppose the first thing you might say is that the person is quite myopic. If you can't see details, then it would be very hard to spot traps, describe monsters, or even recognize and differentiate between acquaintances. Reading runes and "reading" peoples' emotions and so forth becomes much harder.
You might instead say that the person is an ADHD case who can't concentrate enough to process what he's seeing and hearing. Remembering names and faces becomes nearly impossible. Concentrating on searching for a trap or, for instance, counting a large number of objects is very difficult. The person is always mentally far away even if he's right there with you trying to have a conversation.
You could also say perhaps the person is "on the spectrum" and gets super-focused on whatever he's interested in at that moment to the exclusion of all other details.
But I'm really more interested in what you think a 3 in Wisdom might mean. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious; what do you think it is?
