Human social life and social health is significant. Wisdom and intellectuality can affect individual and social life of the human and help to form his social life. The aim of this study was to investigate effect of wisdom and intellectuality on a healthy social life. This is a qualitative study with Grounded theory approach. The participants were 59 individuals online on the web who were selected through theoretical sampling in purposeful method. The data were collected by a semi-structured interview through an online interview using Q & A Yahoo! Answers software (yahoo answers). The interviews were analyzed and necessary concepts were extracted from the literature by Straus and Corbin Model. Most of the participants in the study mentioned the sub-categories of social life dimensions such as having knowledge, experience, understanding, and insight (37.73%). Some other concepts were also emphasized such as the use of knowledge with 6.6% and making a right decision at the right time as effective on life with 5.66%. From 88 concepts, 7 sub-categories and 6 main categories were formed. The wise man is humble, teachable, and willing to learn. He is not conceited and arrogant but, he is sage. The wise man brings the knowledge into practice and uses it in the context of his life and society to experience a life with deep understanding through wisdom and intellectuality; this can, in turn, create a life with the sense of satisfaction and form a social healthy life, as well.
