Wisdom is an attribute in NetHack.

Effects

Healers, Knights, Monks, Priests, and Valkyries use Wisdom to cast spells. Wisdom is not particularly important to other classes, though it affects how fast your power regenerates (hence is fairly important for Wizards) and how much power you gain when leveling up.

Wisdom is one of the easiest stats to maximize. Many activities exercise it, including engraving Elbereth (with correct capitalization) and successful searching. It can also be increased by sleeping with a foocubus and getting the "You will always remember the foocubus" message.
