Guys , I was wondering : how do you roleplay a character who's got a low (9 or below) wisdom score?
I've been thinking about the BG npc's who are unwise (Shar Teel, Minsc, Nalia..) and I could make out that they have a misconstructed view of reality .
Minsc usually sees reason through Boo's advice, but he is the only one who apparently understands the hamster .
Shar teel is blinded by her hatred and childhood traumas.
Nalia is well intentioned but is unfortunately trying to help a people that she does not really understand while being attached to the paradigms of a noblewoman.
Wise characters are misunderstood by common because they actually see beyond menial problems and have the ability to understand what's really going on . Xzar may be quite a loon but his deeper understanding of life and death gave him the ability to specialize in necromancy, a dangerous school for the unwise.
By following this logic, are unwise characters misunderstood because they actually can't understand basic principles? Shar teel despises all men, her past will always twist her feelings and she is most likely to respond with violence even if it weren't necessary to do so.
What about your own characters? How do you roleplay lack of wisdom?
