The researchers attempted to find out the answer to what has been known as Solomon's paradox, named after the Old Testament King, who was famed for his wisdom but failed to make good decisions in his own life, the Independent reported.

Researchers concluded that people are wiser when reasoning about others' problems than when reasoning about their own problems and the results demonstrated that self-distancing reduces this asymmetry in wise reasoning, whereas aging does not, contrary to what some recent research might lead one to expect.

The study is published in the journal Psychological Science.
